Wetlands Work! is a social enterprise that designs and builds innovative and simple constructed wetland systems to treat water from a variety of contaminated sources. We also promote public awareness of the many substantive values of wetlands through educational programming.
Wetlands Work! represents a commitment to safe water as a human right. Globally, on an ever-increasing scale, poor sanitation and contaminated industrial effluents exacerbate child mortality and human health, as well as decrease the availability and access to improved water for consumption, food-related uses, and washing. As in many countries, this is reflected within Cambodia, where the critical issues of the interdependence of sewage, sanitation, rural health, landscape ecology and education levels have been slow to develop in the public’s awareness.
