I'm very pleased to announce that our new book, jointly published by UNEP and SEI, is now released!

Sanitation, Wastewater Management and Sustainability: From Waste Disposal to Resource Recovery offers a new conceptual framework for planning and investing in sustainable systems, centering on resource recovery and reuse. It examines the social, governance, economic, health, environmental and technological dimensions of sustainable sanitation and wastewater management and resource recovery.

It is rich with ideas, arguments, knowledge and concrete, real-world examples, it is a resource for urban and rural development planners, investors and practitioners, as well as civil engineers and students.



The book is available for download on SEIs website (https://www.sei-international.org/publications?pid=2997).

All comments and feedback are most welcome!

We hope that you will find the book useful in your own work and beyond. So please also pass on the word to colleagues and friends that it is now available!

Kind regards,
Kim]]>

In this paper, the authors describe a new approach, behavior centered design (BCD)—which encompasses a theory of change, a set of behavioral determinants, and a program design process—that can target specific behaviors and has been shown to change hygiene, nutrition, and other health-related behaviors.

SNV and ISF-UTS recent publications on urban sanitation - by: Freya http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/89-new-publications-books-articles-partner-newsletters-journals-blogs-websites-videos/18861-snv-and-isf-uts-recent-publications-on-urban-sanitation#18861 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/89-new-publications-books-articles-partner-newsletters-journals-blogs-websites-videos/18861-snv-and-isf-uts-recent-publications-on-urban-sanitation#18861
As part of our USHHD programme, we have a long term partnership with the Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology Sydney focused on knowledge and learning to improve practice and contribute to the WASH sector knowledge and evidence. Our recent collaborative efforts have resulted in the following papers:

Are we doing the right thing? Critical questioning for city sanitation planning (2016)
Cities are clear examples of complex and rapidly changing systems, particularly in countries where urban population growth and economic development continue apace, and where the socio-political context strongly influences the directions taken. The concept of double-loop learning can be usefully applied to city sanitation planning. This paper prompts practitioners, policy-makers and development agencies to reflect on their approaches to city sanitation planning and the assumptions that underlie them. Link: City Sanitation Planning paper

Exploring legal and policy aspects of urban sanitation and hygiene (2016)
During 2012-2014, SNV did four country reviews of legal arrangements for urban sanitation and hygiene in Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Indonesia. Based on these experiences, this guide was developed to provide support and guidance for WASH practitioners undertaking a scan of legal arrangements to inform the design (use of frameworks and tools) and delivery (advocacy for improvements) of urban sanitation and hygiene programs. Link: Exploring legal and policy aspects paper

A guide to septage transfer stations (2016)
Septage transfer stations have the potential to significantly reduce the amount of faecal sludge entering the environment by providing a local solution for septage disposal. Localised transfer stations shorten the time required for local operators to collect and transport septage, and they will be able to use smaller vacuum tanks that can navigate the densely populated residential areas. This guide provides information on the salient aspects of selecting, designing, building, operating and maintaining a septage transfer station. Link: Septage transfer station paper

Financing sanitation for cities and towns (2014)
Planning and financing for sanitation in cities and towns in developing countries is often ad hoc and piecemeal. Stronger capacity to plan financing for sanitation infrastructure (and services) for the long term will lead to better outcomes. Planning for adequate long-term services requires consideration of the complete sanitation service chain over the lifecycle of the associated service infrastructure. This paper focuses on access to the upfront finance and other lumpy finance needs for initial investment and for rehabilitation and/or replacement as physical systems approach their end of life. Link: Financing sanitation paper
