Climate Change Impact on Water Well- Latrine Distance

Note by moderator: This post was originally a response to this thread: forum.susana.org/195-climate-change-and-...ell-latrine-distance ("Climate change impact on water well latrine distance")

++++++++++++

Dear Mughal,
Regarding your call for SuSanA to develop guidance manuals on impacts of climate change on sanitation and water supply facilities; I just want to inform you that SuSanA WG3 (Renewable energies and climate change) is leading a paper on linkages between sanitation and climate change. This aims at providing some general guidance on how sanitation can help address climate change. The initial drafting of this paper has been supported by the SuSanA Phase III project and by a group of students from the Cranfield University. Later this year I expect that the draft paper will be shared on the forum to receive comments and feedback from Forum members.

I can also recommend having a look at the factsheet from WG3 'Links between sanitation, climate change and renewable energies' that provides some useful orientation.

All the best,
Kim

Dear Kim,

That is nice and interesting. Could I know, when the final study would be ready; and how we can access it?

Re: Climate Change Impact on Water Well- Latrine Distance

Dear Mughal,
According to the preliminary time plan, the draft discussion paper on linkages between sanitation and climate change will be shared with a broader audience at the end of August, in connection with Stockholm World Water Week 2017. Signing up as a member of WG3 is one way to be kept in the information loop!

Best regards,
Kim

Re: Climate Change Impact on Water Well- Latrine Distance

Dear all,
Sorry for the silence in reporting back about the progress on this factsheet/discussion paper on linkages between sanitation and climate change, that I mentioned a couple of months ago. We have deviated somewhat from the original timeline. We are still working on a initial version, that we aim to have ready to share on the forum for feedback, linked to the COP in Bonn in November. Please see the presentation from the 24th SuSanA meeting in Stockholm, 26 Aug 2017, which provide a background to the paper and an overview of proposed content. See:
www.susana.org/files/Susana-meeting-August-26_EC.pdf
Of course we are happy to receive any comments on this first idea of structure of the paper. But we especially look forward to your feedback and potential contributions when we have the first draft of the paper in the beginning of November.

All the best,
Kim

I just wanted to make you aware that there is also a video from the presentation that he had mentioned:

This link here will hopefully jump you to the right time in the video:

Or go here and fast forward to 1:48:29
