In Asia, access to drinking water is a major issue because of the intrusion of saline groundwater in many areas. Water containing a high concentration of salts is unsuitable for human consumption. The situation is expected to get worse as a result of climate change. This report suggests the development of a ‘road map’ for scalable, low energy-input solutions for small-scale desalination.
