Water challenges in ASEAN-5 countries
The ASEAN-5 region increasingly faces challenges related to climate change, resulting in flooding and pollution. Concrete challenges are reducing industrial pollution, plastic waste and improving water quality. There is also a demand for water technology that can contribute to the prevention and control of flooding. The demand for smart technologies for reuse of industrial wastewater, drainage, clean water supply, improving sanitation, and nature-based solutions is therefore high.
A recent study by NWP Member Royal HaskoningDHV, commissioned by Netherlands Enterprise Agency, provides a comprehensive picture of the water challenges in the ASEAN-5 region.
