Rethinking urban water through the circular economy and resilience lenses offers an opportunity to transform the urban water sector and deliver water supply and sanitation services in a more sustainable, inclusive, efficient, and resilient way.

In Asia, where rapid urbanization is occurring, inadequate water and sanitation services are a problem due to insufficient investment. Asia’s urbanization rate has risen from 32.8% in 1991 to 51.1% in 2020, and more than half of the world’s urban population already lives in Asia.

This paper explores the relationship between antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and water pollution. It highlights how the amount of consumption and discharge of antimicrobial drugs into water bodies, in combination with the socio-economic vulnerability of a country determines the rate at which AMR spreads.

Target 6.3 is: “By 2030, improve water quality by reducing pollution, eliminating dumping and minimizing release of hazardous chemicals and materials, halving the proportion of untreated wastewater and substantially increasing recycling and safe reuse globally”.

Wastewater-fed aquaculture has a long history, especially in Asia. This report examines three empirical cases of integrated wastewater treatment and aquaculture production.

This Report provides an overview of the technical and design considerations of water-sensitive technologies for urban informal settlements with a core design goal to reduce exposure of residents to faecal contamination.

“Water pollution by plastics and microplastics: A review of technical solutions from source to sea,” composed of a toolkit and catalogue, has been jointly developed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Water Management Institute (IWMI).

In this catalogue there are brief descriptions of technologies that can be implemented to address the contamination of water bodies by plastics and microplastics. For each technology the information provided includes a description and examples of applications, opportunities, barriers and typical costs of implementation.

This Issue Brief aims to: (i) facilitate discussion on the need to properly address the existing issue of poor wastewater management in many Asian countries, in order to minimise the human health risks associated with SARS-COV-2 infections; (ii) identify possible routes of SARS-CoV-2 infections and contamination across water and wastewater servi
