Rainwater Harvesting Policies in Southeast Asia: A Comparative Overview

Amidst the global push for sustainability, rainwater harvesting emerges as a pivotal solution. Let's delve into Southeast Asia's approach, comparing policies and initiatives across key countries:

1. Singapore:

 Pioneering water management, Singapore's ABC Waters Program has integrated rainwater harvesting, contributing approximately 17% of the nation's water demand. PUB Singapore aims to expand this to 50% by 2060.

2. Malaysia:

With a national policy emphasizing water conservation, Malaysia has witnessed a surge in residential rainwater harvesting systems, contributing around 10-15% to the total water supply.

3. Thailand:

Focusing on agriculture, Thailand's Royal Rainmaking Project aims to increase rainfall. Additionally, community-based rainwater harvesting systems have contributed significantly to rural water security.

4. Vietnam: Encouraged by the government, Vietnam has seen a rise in local initiatives. Community-based rainwater collection systems provide access to clean water, benefitting approximately 40-60% of rural households.

These diverse strategies highlight how each country tackles water management challenges uniquely.
