Roundtable discussion Industrial Rainwater Harvesting


The industrial sector of Bangladesh, including RMG factories, relies heavily
on high water consumption. This is not only resulting in depleting
groundwater levels but is also affecting the surface water quality.

Moreover, the adverse impacts of climate change have accelerated the
rapidly deteriorating situation. One of the most viable solutions to this
problem can be RWH – a simple technique that can be implemented at a
low cost – as Bangladesh is privileged to have a large amount of rainfall
during the monsoon, ranging between 150cm and 350cm per month in
different areas.
