The Briefing Note “Mapping EU Support for Sanitation in Africa”, published by the EU Water Initiative (EUWI) Africa Working Group, is based on a full study by WEDC in association with Hydroconseil. The purpose of the study is to obtain an overview of the status of the involvement of EU Member States and the European Commission in sanitation-related activities in Africa. It is anticipated that the findings of this work will have the potential to be used for both arguing for greater priority for sanitation within the international architecture and also for individual donors to use in discussing their own Official Development Assistance (ODA).
- Re: Pathogen destruction in biogas plant vs ABR - by: MichaelCarr December 19, 2014Hi there all: I still have my L plates on but trying to catch up. I see two potential ways for further destruction of helminth eggs in fecal sludge - 1) aerobic thermophillic composting, mixed with other biomass. 2) laying sludge out in drying beds. How long does it take for UV light to positively kill all pathogens when laid out like this? From what I know, […]
- "Pulling" way from Open Defecation via Aspirational Marketing - by: denniskl December 18, 2014I have been observing the forums on SuSana and other sites about the problems of OD and sanitation and toilets etc. I have read the Compendium on Sanitation Systems and technologies, and I have done several online courses on sanitation and systems. I get the 8 systems, multiple technologies and I understand the CLTS process (or enough anyway). Not an Expert […]

- Re: Sustainable Decentralized Wastewater Management in Developing Countries (AIT, Thailand) - by: denniskl December 18, 2014Don't be disheartened Thammaratt:) Systems may seem similar (to me, as an outsider they do) but clever tech is not the issue anyway - it's suitability for purpose and culture, mass distribution and high volume usage uptake via even cleverer marketing, financial support systems, entrepreneurial models and distribution, installation, servicing and ma […]
- Re: Sustainable Decentralized Wastewater Management in Developing Countries (AIT, Thailand) - by: denniskl December 18, 2014Hi Daniel, Very interesting - and as a non-techie, Thammaratt's system does seem to be very similar, although maybe the thermophilic septic processing part is different? Can you explain the volumes that can be processed - I see mention of 800 students and 4 units, so can obviously cope with 200 students per day, but what is the volume limit per unit per […]
