WWWeek @Home - Video Recording - Sewers for Resilient Sanitation in the 21st Century Aug 25, 2020
How can such sewer systems protect the environment and improve public health in sustainable and resilient ways?
What can we learn from past errors and successes in planning for resilient sanitation for the 21st Century? The session investigated these questions through a series of ’ignite’ presentations covering:
1. The role of sewers in Citywide Inclusive Sanitation.
2. The World Bank’s Connecting the Unconnected report on approaches for getting households to connect to existing sewers.
3. WSUP’s research on approaches for sewering low-income communities in Dhaka.
4. The University of Leeds work in Soweto on lifecycle costs and population density as key considerations for sanitation technology selection.
5. UCL’s SDG mapping of safe sanitation services.
6. pS-Eau’s global documentation of non-conventional sewer experiences.
7. The drivers behind Sweden’s novel blackwater and greywater separate sewer systems. The session concluded with participants (i) indicating their interest in joining the proposed community of practice on ’Sewers for Resilient Sanitation in the 21st Century’ and (ii) voting for those sewer themes for follow-up deep-dive webinars.
