Phd Thesis available: Sanitation planning in developing countries: added value of resource recovery

Dear all,
Wanted to share my Phd Thesis with you, called "sanitation planning in developing countries: added value of resource recovery", using the following link:
www.proefschriftmaken.nl/ebooks/sjoerd_kerstens/

The thesis was defended at Wageningen University in the Netherlands with my promotor being Prof Grietje Zeeman. The data and ideas were collected/formed during my work abroad as a sanitation expert. From 2003-2007 I worked in China. One of the projects I worked on (3 years) was the FTEI project (Feasible Technologies for Environmental Infrastructure (wastewater, solid waste and drinking water) in Western China small towns. From 2010-2014 I worked four years in Indonesia on the USDP project (Urban Sanitation Development Project) together with 3 ministries (Public Works, Planning and Health), while cooperating with several different partners (WSP, WB, ADB and Borda). Hope the information is useful for you and I look forward to further discussing it. best regards Sjoerd Kerstens

Re: Sanitation interventions justify their costs and are socially and economically beneficial (example from Indonesia)

Our (RHDHV, World Bank, ADB, Unicef, Wageningen University) article just got published:
"An Integrated Approach to Evaluate Benefits and Costs of Wastewater and Solid Waste Management to Improve the Living Environment: The Citarum River in West Java, Indonesia"

We showed that benefits from selling recovered resources represent an additional driver for improving water quality and outweigh the additional costs for resource recovery facilities. Based on these findings, water quality interventions justify their costs and are socially and economically beneficial.
