Summary

Rainwater and greywater are critically important alternative water sources in places where seasonal changes bring water insecurity. Through a survey and in-depth interviews with households in the Philippines, this study examined use of those alternative sources during both rainy and dry seasons and identified the socioeconomic predictors of reliance on them. The findings provide compelling insights for policy and further research on equitable water access.
