To raise well-being by catalyzing knowledge and action

Publication

WEPA Policy Briefs

In the second phase of WEPA, we focused on specific issues about the water environment in Asia. Based on the knowledge gained through the second phase activities, we published policy briefs regarding some of the issues: “Situation Analysis on Water Environmental Governance”, “Domestic Wastewater Treatment” and “Climate Change and Water Environment.”

The policy brief on Domestic Water Treatment includes a comparative analysis of the current situation in individual Asian countries and their advanced efforts. It focuses particularly on Thailand, Viet Nam, the Philippines and Indonesia. The sections about Thailand and Viet Nam discuss the current situations and challenges on domestic wastewater treatment in urban areas, which are typical cases in Asia. Furthermore, the policy brief shows advanced efforts to deal with domestic wastewater such as the utilisation of private companies in domestic wastewater treatment in the Philippines, and community-based sanitation in Indonesia.
