Special Issue on

Technologies for Water Quality and Wastewater Management in Developing Countries


Water scarcity is happening around the world, but is felt harder in developing countries impinging on the socio-economic growth of these nations. The need for research, investment and implementation of technologies to provide sustainable solutions for low and middle income countries is pertinent. 

With this in view, the special issue entitled “Technologies for Water Quality and Wastewater Management in Developing Countries” will be dedicated to promoting papers which will provide knowledge mainly on novel concepts and tools for water quality monitoring and assessment, sustainable approaches for remediating wastewater and formulating guidelines, policies and regulations for effective water and wastewater management systems for urban areas of developing nations.

Due to the broad nature of this issue, we will be happy to receive papers on the following topics:

  • Sustainable wastewater remediation methods and techniques (Industrial and Domestic)
  • Life cycle analysis and risk assessment of wastewater remediation techniques
  • Wastewater reuse strategies
  • Design and operation of wastewater treatment facilities
  • Use of membranes in wastewater treatment
  • Impact of urban water sources on public health and society
  • Urban water contamination and contaminant transport mechanisms
  • Novel characterization and quantification techniques for urban water
  • Water quality monitoring and assessment (Industrial and Domestic)
