Abstract

Bioremediation, phytotechnology and artificial groundwater recharge have proven effective in industrialized countries. They also have great potential for use in the developing world. Mimicking naturally occurring processes, they provide solutions that are environmentally sustainable. When these and other technologies are applied in developing countries, social, economic and environmental conditions need to be taken into account at the local level. Issues related to technology transfer and capacity building should also be adequately addressed.
