Water quality is a critical challenge in the Asian continent in the context of a growing industrialization and urbanization, and the climate change. Nature-based solutions (NBS), such as built wetlands biofilters, rain gardens and floating parks, could play an important role in the reduction of urban water pollution. Now, the UB Solidarity Foundation will take part in a new nature-based water treatment project in the urban areas of Sri Lanka, the Philippines and Vietnam. This project is led by the RMIT University (Melbourne, Australia) and funded by the Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research, of which the UB Solidarity Foundation is an associate partner to provide with technical advice.

Since 2010, the UB Solidarity Foundation has worked on the management of water resources. The Foundation has worked on the setting up of a waste water treatment plant in the Ha Long Bay and the sustainable management of waste waters and sanitation services in Saint Louis (Senegal).
