Re-launching the world’s most used water and sanitation knowledge platform sswm.info after a complete and thorough overhaul!

Curated for practitioners. Simple to use. Free.

After months of intensive restructuring, content updating and redesigning, we are proud to present the sustainable sanitation and water management toolbox sswm.info in a timely design and structure. The new website has an improved navigation that will allow you to find the information and tools you are looking for - test the new solutions finder that you will see on each page.

In our new perspectives you will find curated content, comprising technologies and process oriented tools, for specific topics like WASH in humanitarian contexts or for sustainable solutions around the Water and Nutrient Cycle .

In the coming month new perspectives will be developed among others on WASH in Cold Climates, Safe Water Businesses, Business Development in Resource Recovery and Safe Reuse or Sanitation and Water Systems in Rural Mexico (in Spanish). The Water Reporting perspective is an example of new content that has been developed on how journalists and sector organizations can develop meaningful and engaging stories on water and sanitation. Sign up for the quarterly SSWM newsletter or visit sswm.info more regularly to stay tuned on the launch of new content.

If you want your own water and sanitation expertise reflected on sswm.info, be sure to contact us .

Hi SSWM team,

Well done and I wish you good luck with your website! We had talked in the past about combining your library with the SuSanA library. Pity that we never managed to make any progress on that (there were too many IT hurdles). Your library is much larger than the SuSanA library as you are broader than just sanitation ( www.sswm.info/library )

I might be biased but I find the SuSanA library has a prettier layout than yours at this stage. :whistle: Also, the search function does not seem to work in your library (I tried with Chrome)? And you have stopped using filters for the library search?

How is the catalogue different from the library?

Regards,

Re: Re-launching the world’s most used water and sanitation knowledge platform sswm.info after a complete and thorough overhaul!

Hi Elisabeth,

Thanks for the feedback on the new website. Our developers are currently implementing an AI-based search function that should make it very easy for practitioners to find exactly what they are looking for. The search should be functional at the end of August.

It would be great if we could figure out a way to integrate the libraries. There have also been initial exchanges if sswm.info could be used to make some curated content available on other websites, like SuSanA's, through in-frame solutions. We hope to continue the exchange how we can contribute to providing relevant information, tools and guidance to the SuSanA community!

Togerther with Antenna Foundation we are launching a new perspective on safe water businesses at Stockholm World Water Week. Feel free to already take a look herehere . Also please stay tuned for new content that we are developing with different partners on WASH solutions in cold climates, RRR Business Development and Sanitation Solutions for rural Mexico (in Spanish).

Best,

Janek
