BORDA South Asia

BORDA South Asia operates in four countries: India, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal with its regional office located in Bangalore, India.

The phenomenal urban population growth in South Asia is not supported by proportionate infrastructure development. Local policy-makers and authorities face an enormous challenge: to provide all citizens with adequate, affordable and sustainable sanitation systems. Flexible, decentralised systems are needed to protect the environment and the health and dignity of local residents.

By improving sanitation and promoting decentralised waste and wastewater treatment options, BORDA aims to alleviate poverty while protecting natural resources and mitigating the impact of climate change in South Asia.  Through engagement with partner organisations, BORDA South Asia aims to improve the living conditions of socially disadvantaged groups by facilitating access to basic needs services such as sanitation, wastewater management and water provision while maintaining a safe environment. This is our contribution to creating liveable cities and communities for all.
The phenomenal urban population growth in South Asia is not supported by proportionate infrastructure development. Substantial portions of the population are deprived of basic services such as potable water, sanitation, and drainage. Cities are suffering from environmental degradation. Poverty and lack of housing is reflected in the growth of the informal sector, slums and squatter settlements.
