About Us


Clean water sourcing, conservation, and wastewater management require the fundamentals of science. Asean-Water is at the helm of these scientific and developmental endeavors, forging communities that safeguard its inherent right to a safe and reliable water supply.

Asean-Water was founded by Colin Ferrari and is specialized in protecting water resources in South-East Asia.



Asean-Water was founded with a mission to provide innovative and effective solutions for water contamination and remediation in Southeast Asia.

Despite its abundance, water resources in the region are threatened by underdimensioned dams and reservoirs, poor wastewater management systems, and underfunded science and technology agencies that are unable to effectively protect watersheds. The region is also vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, including population growth, unequal economic development, typhoons, flooding, droughts, and water pollution caused by a lack of regulations.

Our primary goal and unwavering commitment is to help people in the region to adapt to these challenges while maintaining their dignity. Access to clean and safe water is a fundamental and inalienable right for everyone, and we aim to contribute to this by providing innovative and effective solutions for water contamination and remediation.
