The Background Policy Study (here: Study) on Wastewater Management and Sanitation in Cambodia, Lao PDR and Socialist Republic of Viet Nam (here Viet Nam) seeks to address the following three primary goals: (a) revisiting the policies, strategies, institutional and financial framework of the three countries; (b) reviewing barriers and drivers of sustainable sanitation services (SSS), and, (c) suggesting solutions and options for reform. Decentralized Wastewater Treatment Systems (DEWATS) are presented as one potential solution to sanitation issues in developing areas due to their low cost, modular structure, and potential for resource recovery and community empowerment.
