Dec 27 – I witnessed the city government of Tacloban, an urban center in the Philippines devastated by 2013’s Typhoon Haiyan, passionately push efforts to fund and construct decentralized wastewater treatment for long-term recovery.

The need for improved WASH facilities and integrated WASH programs is often overlooked in post-disaster reconstruction (and in the Philippines small septic tanks are customary), so it was great to see a local government aim to “build back better” WASH!  

I am a PhD student at CU Boulder and was a volunteer environmental engineer with Tacloban City. Shaye Palagi, PhD Student | Civil Systems, Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering, University of Colorado Boulder

Dec 22 – I am learning, being acquainted and enriched with a lot of relevant technical, financial and updates on global sanitation, thanks to Sanitation Updates. This is my achievement!!! On lessons learned, I think academic essays on sanitation is overlooked. more relevant published pieces could be posted on this website – Mohammad Almjadleh, WASH Specialist, Jordan
