|Advanced Opportunities in the Urban Water Infrastructure Market in APAC, 2019|
|Rapid Urbanization, Increasing Population, and Efficiency Requirements are Driving the Need for Improvement in Urban Water Infrastructure|
Urban water infrastructure in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is witnessing enormous investments in order to cater to the needs of the growing population and to address the challenges posed by rapid urbanization, and climate change.
Key investments in the region are towards replacement of old pipes, expansion of existing pipe network, water treatment, water reclamation, storm water harvesting, quake resilience, development of smart water grids and improving consumer infrastructure.
Climate change policies and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal of universal access to clean drinking water and sanitation are encouraging APAC countries (and others globally as well) to invest in developing adequate infrastructure and provide sanitation facilities for their citizens.
