This article considers current trends in antimicrobial resistance (AMR) research and knowledge gaps relevant to policymaking in the water sector. Specifically, biological indicators of AMR (antibiotic-resistant bacteria and their resistance genes) and detection methods that have been used so far are identified and discussed, as well as the problems with and solutions to the collection of AMR data, sewage surveillance lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the financial burden caused by AMR, which could be synergically used to improve advocacy on AMR issues in the water sector.
