(also available in French, German and Arabic)
IWC cover

Discharges of wastewater from industrial activities represent a global challenge, with developing countries and emerging economies especially vulnerable to their environmental impacts. The aim of this compendium is to support the development and implementation of environmental solutions in India and the MENA region. It is designed to serve as a guide for users, decision-makers and technology providers alike by highlighting the industrial wastewater situation in the partner countries and outlining specific approaches to wastewater treatment. The 2030 Agenda aims to make a contribution to environmental and climate protection in pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals. The compendium is a contribution to the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 6, which advocates clean water and access to sanitation for all. It specifically addresses sub-goal 6.3: ‘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.’
