The Asia Water Governance Index (AWGI) aims to help water policy makers from Asia learn from one another in terms of water laws, policies and administration. Building on the work of Saleth and Dinar (2004), it is based on a survey of 102 water experts from 20 countries / states in Asia Pacific using 20 governance indicators. Launched by Elinor Ostrom, 2009 Nobel Laureate in Economics, AWGI was one of the 3 finalists in the 2010 Suez International Water Prize.
