Wastewater resource recovery is being implemented in many countries around the world but this is usually done in an ad-hoc basis and is not part of a long-term national strategy or policy. There are successes and failures around the world and information on the technological options abound, but there is much less information available on the institutional, regulatory and policy frameworks that incentivize these schemes nor on the financing/contractual arrangements behind these approaches. Many developing countries still think of wastewater as a waste; as something that needs to be treated and discharged. There is a need to move from a linear to a circular thinking.
