dc.description.abstract<p>Historically, wind energy has been used in many parts of Asia and the Pacific to supply power for various purposes, including water pumping. The potential for application of wind-powered waler pumping, as a cost-effective alternative to conventional pumps, is enormous in the region. Wind pumping could play a significant role in the supply of water for drinking and irrigation in rural areas of the developing countries, provided there is a favourable match between the wind energy potential and demand for waler at any particular area.</p> <p>This study has been prepared with a view to promoting wind-powered water pumping in developing countries of the ESCAP region. The study report consists of two parts. The first part is devoted to the technical aspects of wind energy in relation to small-scale water pumping systems. The second part essentially deals with the application of wind energy for water pumping purposes in different countries in the world both within and outside ihc ESCAP region. It also reviews the current research and &nbsp;demonstration programmes. Finally, an attempt is made to project the role of ESCAP and other international and national agencies in fostering international cooperation in the promotion of wind pumping in the ESCAP region.</p>
