Call for Water Professionals to Fill Out Survey on Constructed Wetlands (UNU-FLORES)

UNU-FLORES has designed a questionnaire to identify the needs of potential users of a global platform on constructed wetlands.
The platform will compile accessible data and provide a mechanism for data submission. The Constructed Wetlands Knowledge Platform (CWKP) will consist of a comprehensive database and a geographic information system. These functions will enable the assessment of the global amount of wastewater treated by constructed wetlands and support the efforts of various stakeholders in research, policymaking, financing, implementation, and operation.

To shape this complex web solution according to the needs of its potential users, wastewater professionals from science and practice are called on to share their needs in an online survey, based on their best knowledge.

Dear Carlos,

How did you go with your survey? (Survey on Needs for a Knowledge Platform on Constructed Wetlands)
Good response rate and any preliminary or final results to share yet?

Your posting reminded me a little bit of one from Christoph Platzer in Brazil from a few years ago where he introduced to us the Global Wetland Technology group ( forum.susana.org/36-constructed-wetlands...l-wetland-technology ). Could we useful to connect with some people from that group if they are not already part of this initiative.

Regards,
Elisabeth

Dear Mr. Carlos,

Do the Constructed Wetlands Knowledge Platform (CWKP) have manuals on the design and operation of constructed wetland; and, on comparison between constructed wetlands and waste stabilization ponds?

Dear Dr. Elisabeth von Münch:
Based on a recently concluded survey by UNU-FLORES among water professionals, there is a clear demand for a global platform on constructed wetlands. A majority of the 173 respondents was convinced about the usefulness of such an initiative for scientists, practitioners, and other stakeholders.
The survey is an initial step towards bringing together the existing bits of knowledge on constructed wetlands. Researchers at UNU-FLORES have been working on creating a central online platform about constructed wetlands worldwide entailing a global database.
Regards.
