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.



The idea of Asean-water was found after several stays in Southeast Asia, where we were touched by the kindness and hospitality of the people as well as by the central place that water was playing in their daily life.

Its abundance is downplayed by under-dimensional dams and reservoirs, poor wastewater management systems, and under-funded science and technology agencies that could not effectively protect watersheds.

Due to a large growing population, very unequal economic development, territories subject to typhoons, regular flooding, increasingly frequent droughts and water pollution due to a lack of regulations, Southeast Asia is a region particularly vulnerable to climate change.
Our primary goal and commitment is to be able to help people, to adapt, and most especially, to keep their dignity. Access to water is a fundamental and inalienable right for everyone.
Let us go forward in this battle fortified by conviction that those who labour in the service of a great and good cause will never fail.


To be the most dependable authority on water sciences providing viable and cost-effective alternatives to attain sustainability and community development.


Help communities attain the highest level of expertise in water sourcing, conservation, wastewater management, and environmental protection through scientific methodologies.
