Abstract:Water scarcity is an evolving challenge in our world. One of the main polluters and consumers of it is industry specifically textiles in developing countries. The textile sector highly contributes to the economics of Bangladesh and it also has huge environmental impacts on the water sources in the country. Textile sector in Bangladesh consumes large quantities of freshwater and is one of the major contributors to the water pollution of the water bodies in the country. This research aims at answering research questions regarding the current situation of water management in textile industry in Bangladesh and the measures in place to enhance the situation. Moreover, it analyzed one of the good practices (PaCT) which currently exists in the country to have a cleaner textile sector. The analysis results showed that the governance context for the project is slightly positive the main findings are that not all the actors were involved in the project and the used instruments are not enough to urge and monitor the long term behavioral change. Also, the study recommended that the project can find incentives and target the involvement of all actors and stakeholders, involving the local communities and governmental parties in the raising awareness activities.
