Abstract

The objective of this study was to review the main rainwater harvesting and treatment systems through a bibliometric analysis from 2000-2021. A bibliometric analysis was used in the R program and VOS viewer, the query involved titles, abstracts, and keywords during the last 20 years (2000-2021). The results indicate that from 2013 onwards, interest in this topic increased. 13% of the publications belong to the academic journal Journal of Cleaner Production. The main author leading the publications is Ghisi, from Brazil, who conducted 24 types of research and one of his papers reached 95 citations. In conclusion, there is evidence of the need to strengthen research in developing countries to contribute to water saving and supply in areas that do not have drinking water.
