Eco-Home for Sustainable Water Management: A Case Study in Kathmandu, Nepal
PDF File Size: 1.94 MB | Download   
Problems associated with the lack of clean drinking water and polluted water bodies are common to many cities in developing countries. With rapid urbanization and increasing pressure on city governments, who often lack adequate financial as well as human resources to handle the problems, the water crisis is deteriorating daily.
Supply of inadequate and poor quality water and disposal of untreated sewer into river are major issues of all urban centres in Nepal. It is time for sustainable management of water resources that can be started from individual level. Even though rainwater harvesting is one of the best options to solve the current water crisis, it is not a complete solution due to the rainfall pattern in the country.
