WaSH case study Yaoundé / Cameroon (fr) - Pilot Study on Groundwater Quality and Health in Yaoundé

This is to announce the (french version) report of a joint WaSH-survey carried out in the subsaharan cameroonian capital Yaoundé in dry season 2012 within the framework of German bilateral cooperation with Cameroon. The report is authored by the National Institute of Statistics (NIS/INS) Yaoundé and the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) Hannover with participation of the IHPH University Bonn, the University of Yaoundé 1 and HRC/IRGM in Yaoundé.

For download and further material please look at:

www.bgr.bund.de/cameroon-epess

and

www.statistics-cameroon.org

Key features of the report (190 p) are:

- Groundwater microbiology and geochemistry of urban environments
- Quantitative household WaSH-survey (1137 households)
- Thematic mapping with Open Source GIS

For the EPESS-Team


P.S.: The english version (in prep.) will be announced upon availability


++++++++

Note by moderator (EvM): I guess you mean this report:
INS & BGR (2013): Etude Pilote sur la Pollution des Eaux de Surface et Souterraines à Yaoundé et son Impact sur la Santé des Populations Riveraines (EPESS). - Final Technical Report: 190 p., 117 fig., 75 tab., 24 maps, 11 ann.; Yaoundé, Hanovre, Bonn. (PDF, 80 MB)

The link is here under Literature (second bullet point):
www.bgr.bund.de/EN/Themen/Wasser/Projekt...erun/kamerun_en.html

It is however 80 MB large which is not so practical. Could you please provide a lower resolution version? Even with the fast internet connection that I am on, I gave up after a few minutes of downloading time, and I thought of Chris Canaday in Ecuador for example who struggles with anything larger than say 5 MB.

Thanks EvM, you are right:
a low resolution copy (16Mb) is available on the same page, just below the 80Mb asteroid:

INS & BGR (2013): Small version of the final technical report "Etude Pilote sur la Pollution des Eaux de Surface et Souterraines à Yaoundé et son Impact sur la Santé des Populations Riveraines (EPESS)" (PDF, 16 MB)

www.bgr.bund.de/EN/Themen/Wasser/Projekt...=publicationFile&v=1

We will also split off and make the appendix available separately.
