Groundwater has been overexploited in some Asian cities, causing significant problems such as land subsidence. The resource is also under the threat of aquifer contamination. The SWMP project formulated 14 recommendations, beased on teh SWMP study aiming to achieve sustainable groundwater management in the Asian cities. The recommendations particularly highlighted the emerging issues regarding groundwater management, issues that must be addressed withthe upmost urgency. Groundwater management in the Aisan citeis should be dynamic and proactive, considering not only the diversity of hydrogeological conditions but also the constantly-changing policy environment resulting from the ongoing urbanization and industrial development in Asia. The recommendations proposed are generic in nature, and the real application of the recommendations necessitates the special consideration fo unique local conditions.
