TPS-Conference brochure is ready for download -> www.terra-preta-sanitation.net/cms/index.php?id=58.

The contributes to the TPS-IC are available, but only for conference participants. I received my login information by administration@tps-ic.org . Perhaps conference andministration will provide you access to the publications.

I am writing because I am interested to check on the progress of the conference proceedings that may develop as part of the TPS conference earlier this year.

I am working as a volunteer WASH advisor in Cambodia and could not make the conference but I have been eagerly waiting these documents.

Elisabeth recommends here as a good place to find out.

Outcome of the SuSanA WG5 meeting held during the TPS Conference in Hamburg (Aug. 30, 2013) - by: rob# http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/58-wg-5-productive-sanitation/5769-outcome-of-the-susana-wg5-meeting-held-during-the-tps-conference-in-hamburg-aug-30-2013#5769 http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/58-wg-5-productive-sanitation/5769-outcome-of-the-susana-wg5-meeting-held-during-the-tps-conference-in-hamburg-aug-30-2013#5769
With a slight delay I would like to share with you the results of the recent SuSanA woking group 5 meeting which was held during the Terra Preta Sanitation - International Conference in Hamburg (Aug. 29-31, 2013).

During the meeting the SuSanA WG5 offered to the TPS community to potentially use the WG5 as a permanent platform - also beyond the TPS conference - to discuss latest TPS trends, developments and potential bottlenecks and how TPS can influence and be further promoted within the wider SuSanA community. This offer was very much appreciated by the participants and has led to the following...

...main outcomes of the meeting:

1. Development of a discussion paper/fact sheet on Terra Preta Sanitation
The aims of such paper is to develop a common understanding and a definition on TPS and its processes among the TPS practitioners and experts. The discussion paper will be based on the final summary report from the TPS conference which will be prepared in the coming days/weeks by TUHH and WECF. Several participants (from Engineers without Borders, Germany and the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, India) already offered to contribute to the development of such paper as soon as the TUHH publication is finalised. If there are further people from the SuSanA community interested to actively contribute to the discussion paper please kindly get back to me ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it )

2. Mapping and inventory of existing best practice experiences and research activities related to TPS
In the coming weeks a methodology will be developed by a group from Engineers without Borders on how to best collect the different experiences. As soon as this has been develop we will ask for WG member contributions to feed in their projects and research results.

Thanks and best regards

It is quite interesting for anyone who is interested in Terra Preta and interested in the work that WECF is doing on this topic:

WECF have been working in the last 15 years on urine diverting dry or simply said ecosan toilets. Rostom Gamisonia (Georgia) and Anara Choitonbaeva (Kyrgyzstan) presented presented the astonishing results of their ecosan projects, in which more than 1000 households and 40 schools have adopted the ecosan technology and farmers are re-using its products as fertilizers and soil-improvers. Their projects show that UDDT's are suitable for rural areas, however urine diversion is still facing some barriers regarding re-use. Ms. Nadia Andreev from Moldova reported about her promising research results on the application of Terra preta made of ecosan products.


The conference presentations can soon be found on the website at: www.tps-ic.org.

I am encouraging those people who attended the conference to give us some feedback about your main learnings and take-home messages here. Thanks.

it is now official - there will be a SuSanA WG 5 meeting (food security and productive sanitation systems) integrated in the 1st International Terra Preta Conference (held in Hamburg, Germany).

Please find here the links to both events in our SuSanA event calendar:
Please also check out this discussion (it is a bit longer - but it pretty well shows how interesting that topic is and how much need for discussion there is).

Have a nice evening and hope to see you there!
Best,
Enno]]>
