Improving the efficiency of water utilities and reducing water losses are becoming priorities in urban areas of Asia with decreasing water sources and rapidly increasing urban population, unlike in the past.
With the loss of 29 billion cubic metres of treated water every year, valued at $9bn, the issue of effective management of water assumes critical importance for enhanced consumer satisfaction and avoiding capital-intensive capacity expansion.

This publication provides introduction to the subject matter, highlights the complexity of managing non- revenue water (NRW), offers guidance on NRW assessment, and recommends appropriate performance indicators.
