Clean Water

Background

Clean water is essential to human life, protection of balance ecosystem and preserving safe environment for all living beings. Lack of access to clean water is a significant issue for a number of Asia Pacific economies due to growing populations, rapid urbanization, increasing water pollution and competing demands for water.


Valid data on water quality parameters are needed to ensure that correct measures are taken by decision makers in monitoring, controlling and reducing pollution and contamination of water resources.


National Metrology Institutes can play a significant role to solve problems related to the availability of clean water by engaging with key stakeholders responsible for water management in the country. APMP Focus Group (FG) on Metrology for Clean Water is aimed at improving both technical and networking capabilities of APMP members to enable them to play this role effectively.
