Valuing The Cost and Benefits of Improved Wastewater Management: An Economic Valuation Resource Guide for the Wider Caribbean Region

Wastewater management in the Wider Caribbean Region is a major challenge – the lack of resources  and infrastructure to properly treat wastewater has led to water pollution resulting in negative impacts to important coastal and freshwater ecosystems and to human health. Across the region, 80% of domestic wastewater entering the Caribbean Sea remains untreated; 51.5 % of households lack sewer connections; and only 17% of households are connected to acceptable collection and treatment systems (GEF CREW 2012).
