Re: Joint Webinar on Treatment Systems?

Dear Alice,
Thanks for kick-starting this initiative.
I am interested in attending and participating in such a webinar and I think it would be useful for many people.
Leeds University is currently doing a project on costing for urban sanitation systems (CACTUS - Climate and Costs in Urban Sanitation - www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/projects/database/details/398 ). I think you should engage them as they could have some interesting insights to share with regards to costing aspects for decentralized systems. I think Prof. Barbara Evans is leading the project.

Regards,
Daniel

Re: Joint Webinar on Treatment Systems?

Dear WG4 Members and Dewats practitioners :

We welcome the suggestion to have webinar in Dewats systems in developing countries.

It is seen that in the service delivery of ensuring compliant effluent at waste water flows there is total administrational disregard, lacking in governance and many others.

At best systems that are naturally operating , being low- tech and easy to operate and maintain are well suited.

Also there should be complete involvement of communities in BOM ie in building operating and maintaining the systems.

The resources generated by way of recycled water is to be used in-situ and the value of the benefits realised by community. This ensures longevity and sustainance of the systems.

Well wishes .

Re: Joint Webinar on Treatment Systems?

Hi Alice,
I am just wondering what came out of the planning for this joint webinar on implementing decentralised wastewater treatment systems in developing countries? You had quite a few people interested in presenting and participating.

I see you had a webinar in August specifically for the situation in Jordan (using Results from the conceptual study Integrated Wastewater Treatment Systems for Small Communities in Ba’oon and Rasoon Villages in Ajloun Governorate and Al-Raieh and Al-Jubbah Villages in Jerash Governorate): forum.susana.org/229-dewats-decentralise...tation-now-available

Is that a smaller version of what you originally had in mind or would it form part of a series of webinars you are planning on hosting?

Regards,
Elisabeth

Re: Joint Webinar on Treatment Systems?

Dear SuSanA members.

It is nearly an year since we discussed on having a Webinar or equivelant.
I am with you all to partake in same.

As the subject is apt, it needs to be deliberated, so that Members are aware of easily do-able initiatives in communities for improving QoL quality of living, Etc.

Well wishes .

Re: Joint Webinar on Treatment Systems?

Dear Prof. Sheshari,

thank you for the reminder and for taking up this joint effort again.
From our project side, Sanitation for Millions is waiting to see results from constructing DEWATS in Pakistan, to share the experiences through a webinar.
What type of input would you like to suggest from your side?

Best,
Alice
