RG-T3477 : Water Security, Circular Economy and Wastewater-to-Resource (WW2R) in Latin America and the Caribbean: Analytical Research and Case Study Implementation
Project Status: Implementation
The primary objective of this analytical work is to promote a paradigm shift in the LAC region's approach to circular economy in water, and specifically in wastewater through resource recovery. Wastewater-to-resource (WW2R) increases the economic benefits of treatment systems and provides additional benefits that can be captured by the served population (energy, nutrients, bio-solids). This work will promote the prioritization and design of investments in the context of a circular economy in which wastewater is considered as an asset and a resource to be utilized rather than a liability, while promoting at the same time integrated, regional watershed planning. This project will consider basins which are trans-boundary as a plus to be considered as pilot under thescope of work.
