An analysis of industrial water use in Bangladesh with a focus on the textile and leather industries
The objective of the report is to understand the impact of industrialization on water security in Bangladesh, with a focus on the textile and leather industries, and raise awareness on the scale of the water challenges facing the industrial sector. It provides a summary of the aspirations for growth in both sectors and explores the impact of “business as usual” growth on water resources. The report then presents an analysis of the opportunities for the sector in improving water use and effluent treatment in order to support more sustainable growth. Finally, it recommends a number of key focus areas within the industrial water sector where a 2030 WRG Bangladesh multi-stakeholder partnership could add value.
