    Abstract Water security is intrinsically connected to development, sustainability, and well-being, encompassing complex and interconnected challenges. In Asia and other regions, issues of water accessibility, reliability, and safety are a critical threat to economic and human development. Mitigating them requires addressing the social mechanisms underpinning water insecurity, which thus far have been largely overlooked in government policies and actions. Recommendations: • Recognise and quantify water security issues to reveal the various values of water (instrumental, economic, moral, and relational values) and inform decision-making in planning, policy, and management. • Integrate the multiple values of water into policy and management, and decrease dependence on external economic support by promoting cultural innovation and technology investments. • Implement monitoring systems to capture the effects of policies and investments for advancing water security in terms of social and environmental well-being.
