Staged within the WSUP “My Toilet” photography exhibition space, this exciting event will offer an opportunity to catch up on the multi-faceted sanitation research currently being carried out by WSUP and Cranfield University: find out what we and our partners are doing, and help us decide where we should be going. Come along and hear about projects ranging from experimental comparisons of different low-cost sludge treatment technologies; through evaluations of the health impact of a major urban sanitation programme; to a study of the effectiveness of different approaches to encourage city councils to spend more on sanitation. You’ll hear short pitches on 10 projects, and you’ll vote to identify the most useful. Refreshments will be provided. Only 50 places available: book now via Eventbrite!]]>

Can't make it for this one, but I will be in South America (mainly Chile, Peru and Bolivia) for a few months starting in December and I hope there are some interesting sustainable sanitation related events or projects I can visit. Suggestions are welcome.]]>

IRC Event: Why we need to make public finance 'sexy'! 12th Nov 2014 - by: caridad http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/21-events/10710-irc-event-why-we-need-to-make-public-finance-sexy-12th-nov-2014#10710 http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/21-events/10710-irc-event-why-we-need-to-make-public-finance-sexy-12th-nov-2014#10710
When
: 12th November, 4:30 - 7:30 PM followed by drinks.
Where: At the venue 7AM (Buitenhof 47, 2513 AH The Hague)

Public finance - money derived from taxation- is critical for achieving water, sanitation and hygiene for everyone forever. But how do we get governments to prioritise it? What should (and shouldn't) it be used for?
How can public finance be used effectively together with philanthropy/aid and private finance with the aim to support sustainable services at scale?
Revenue overview of Sunyani West district Ghana

This event will discuss how public and private finance should not be seen as opposing solutions, but rather as two complementary pieces of the same puzzle in the water and sanitation sector. Speakers interventions will support our understanding of how public finance for basic services like water and sanitation requires us to take account of national processes (e.g. budget allocations to WASH) as well as of local processes (e.g. municipal tax systems) and the processes of fiscal decentralisation which are essential for effective involvement of local government in basic services delivery, now and in the future.

This event pre-empts a broader question, important for many of us working in development: 'How to finance the Sustainable Development Goals?'

This event will be hosted by IRC and supported by the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) and 7AM.

Join us and participate in the discussion around the role of public finance for reaching scale and sustainable water and sanitation services, and network with various people from NGOs/government/academia and private sector afterwards over drinks.

Key Speaker - Guy Norman, Head of Evaluation, Research and Learning at Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP)

Panelists include:

- Mr Eric Smaling, Member of Parliament for the SP (Socialistische Partij), spokesperson for Development Cooperation and Environment

- Sjef Ernes, Director Aqua for All

The programme and a complete list of the panelists will be published on our website soonest and shared with registered participants.

Read an informative piece on public finance by IRC as a prologue to the discussion

For those that cannot be there in person: I am hoping that presentations will be filmed and made available afterwards (but I have not yet heard the final verdict from the organisers on this).

According to their website (www.fsm3.org), the conference aims to present practical innovative solutions that can be applied at scale in the cities.

The website gives interesting definition of what faecal sludge is; and the faecal sludge management.

Since faecal sludge is part of sanitation, could I know who, from the SuSanA platform, would be attending the conference. It would be, beyond doubt, a great experience.

There are going to be a number of exciting workshops on 22 January 2015, with many SuSanA partner organisations involved in the event. The SuSanA secretariat is also looking into the possibilities to organise a SuSanA side event and also chatting to a number of working group leads about possible working group meetings too.

Please let me know if you will be attending and wish to support in the preparation of the SuSanA events.

Look forward to seeing many SuSanA members in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The final programme is here: www.unesco-ihe.org/sites/default/files/uv_brochure.pdf

We have studied UV applications for Sol-Char but the primary benefit is due to solar heating and not germicidal UV for disinfection of surfaces or water/wastewater/septage. We do have a preliminary design for a thin film septage water disinfection with UV but this may be less efficient than solar heating.]]>
