This paper delves into the pivotal role of cleaner production in the pursuit of global water security. Leveraging Biblioshiny, a robust bibliometric analysis tool based on R-Software, the paper examined Scopus data, following PICO protocols and PRISM guidelines. The study's findings underscore the potential of cleaner production strategies on wastewater to underpin water security. To this end, the study proffers three policy interventions: an “Industrial Cleaner Production Policy,” a “Water Eutrophication Prevention Policy,” and an “Environmental Sustainability Club Policy.” These policies collectively constitute a comprehensive framework for ushering in an era of water security anchored in cleaner production principles. In conclusion, the study calls for the seamless integration of cleaner production into global discourse on water security, particularly within the United Nations framework, and its incorporation into various policy documents. This approach ensures cleaner production's central role as a multifaceted intervention tool, enhancing global commitment to water security.
