Sanitation Service Delivery (SSD) is a USAID/West Africa regional urban sanitation project that is implemented by PSI in collaboration with PATH and Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP). The project aims to improve sanitation outcomes by developing and testing scalable business models that engage private sector service providers and by contributing to the creation of a strong enabling environment for sanitation in West Africa. WSUP plays a vital role in supporting government partnership efforts to strengthen public support for improved sanitation and fecal sludge management (FSM) services in Ghana — an important aspect of the SSD.

  1. Il y a aucune possibilité de revaloriser les boues d’assainissement, c’est une hérésie. Toute matière organique transformée en boue le reste définitivement.

    There is no possibility to upgrade the sewage sludge is heresy. Any organic material turned into mud the rest permanently.
