Proposed meeting of SuSanA Working Group 5 at World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden (25-30th August 2019)

Dear Members of WG5 (and others interested in the group topic),

As you may already be aware, many SuSanA members usually attend WWWeek and working groups usually take the opportunity to organize meetings during the week. Gina and I would like to organize a WG5 meeting during this year's WWWeek if there's interest from members. The aim and agenda of the meeting would focus on getting updates on what projects and activities related to the WG5 topic that various members are working on, brainstorming on potential joint activities and initiatives amongst group members and discussing how to update the WG5 factsheet. The date and venue are yet to be decided but could depend on members' interest and/or connecting to WWWeek sessions related to the WG5 topic. We can also arrange for the possibility of virtual/online participation via Skype for Business or other similar tools for those who won't be in Stockholm physically.

We therefore request for your feedback on;
1) If you are interested in attending?
2) What you would expect from such a meeting?
3) If you would like to share a special topic/issue (e.g. past/current work; ideas for working group activities; etc.) during the WG5 meeting.

Feel free to respond here on the SuSanA forum or use the contact button on the left of this post below my profile or even via email.

Kind regards,
Gina & Daniel

Dear all,

Yes, I will be interested in attending. Networking with colleagues and learning current research ongoing in the field will be the primary reason. I head to India to do some field work on a project in Circular economy in sanitation in July so will probably share some findings :)

With kind regards Daniel

Hi, Gina and Daniel:
I would like to share my experience with you on how I convinced the peasants to accept the waterless toilets made by Separett in the place where the The Sixth Happiness Inn located.
best wishes

1) If you are interested in attending? Yes by Skype, not Skype for business, or other open access system
2) What you would expect from such a meeting? To learn of what's actionable, other projects similar to those I'm working on, what are the prioritized needs in the current view (evolutionary view)
3) If you would like to share a special topic/issue (e.g. past/current work; ideas for working group activities; etc.) during the WG5 meeting. Conversion of fecal sludge to marketable products

Re: Proposed meeting of SuSanA Working Group 5 at World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden (25-30th August 2019)

Hi everybody,

I would be very interested in attending!! Thanks for the proposal.
On one hand, I would like to hear and learn from successful communication practices that have been used to engage actors, organizations, and institutions with influence and potential interests in resource-recovery, as well as examples on how to increase awareness about the topic. On the other hand, I would like to have time and space to discuss how policies (international, national and local) are enabling or blocking the application of resource-recovery approaches in the different parts of the world.

As a student of a European Master in Environmental Science, with interests on water governance and the human-rights-based approach as one solution to deal with water challenges, I am currently working in my master thesis “Assessing the governance capacity of a transition to resource-oriented waste management in Chía (Colombia)”. In its context, and with the help of other researchers as Daniel, I have conducted a Governance Capacity Assessment study to identify key barriers and drivers that can enhance governance capacity in order to implement systems for resource recovery from organic waste streams in this city. Therefore, during the meeting I will be willing to share with the rest of the colleagues, the results got in the study, as well as pros and cons of this methodology in the context of resource-recovery within urban scenarios.

Kind regards,
Mónica

Bonjour Daniel
Merci pour l'effort que vous faites pour animer le WG5. Seulement quelques membres comme moi de notre groupe sont francophones et restent très limités dans leur participation aux travaux du groupe. Je voudrais savoir s'il y a une possibilité de prévoir une plage en français pour nous. Cela est mon souhait.

Best regards

Dear Denis,
I added the French translation to your post but I have a problem with this sentence: "I would like to know if there is an opportunity to provide a beach in French for us.". Could you please clarify what you meant? Was it a typo and you meant page, not plage? Please clarify (you can reply in French, it's no problem - we can use Google Translate again).

Yes, I am interested in attending this meeting. Networking and sharing experience with colleagues and learning current research ongoing in the field will be my primary reason. Probably I would like to share sanitation situation in Tanzania especially in Dar es Salaam.

Re: Proposed meeting of SuSanA Working Group 5 at World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden (25-30th August 2019)

Dear Members of WG5 (and others interested in the group topic),

Thank you all who have responded so far to my earlier post about a possible WG5 meeting during World Water Week in Stockholm this year. So far, nine (9) people have indicated interest in participating in a possible meeting, mainly for the purpose of networking and knowledge exchange. Of the 9 people, five (5) indicated that they could be interested in sharing at such a meeting on topics such as; Circular economy in sanitation in India, experiences on convincing people to accept waterless toilets, conversion of fecal sludge to marketable products, Assessing the governance capacity of a transition to resource-oriented waste management in Chía (Colombia) and sanitation situation in Tanzania especially in Dar es Salaam.

Could those who have indicated interest in participating, please let me know if you will be in Stockholm in person or you intend to participate online. In addition, please let me know if your intention for sharing is to make a presentation or just discussions. That way, we can know better how to prepare going forward. If you hadn't yet indicated your interest in this meeting, please feel free to do so (refer to details in the original post which is quoted below).

Note: SuSanA is not able to provide travel grants for members to participate in this WG5 meeting.

Regards,
Daniel
