New Publication: Shaping the water sector to be more climate resilient - A plea for greater and wider collaboration

Dear all,
 
celebrating World Water Day 2021 on March 22nd, six experts, backed by five organizations (Stockholm Environment Institute, GIZ,
Viva con Agua, WaterWorX and EXP-Consult) present a plea for greater and wider
collaboration to shape the water sector to become more climate resilient.
Improved management of water and sanitation services is fundamental not only
for climate change adaptation but also for mitigation – and collaboration plays
a major role in this. The report published under the umbrella of SuSanA describes
important guidelines as well as specific approaches and regulatory framework
conditions for cross-sectoral collaboration, as well as case studies from
around the world. Low-carbon and climate-resilient water and sanitation
services are technically feasible and economically viable. Cross-sectoral
collaboration is needed, but must be done proportionately, with due
consideration of opportunities and risks. With an appropriate regulatory
framework in place, this can add important value for the implementation of SDGs
and the Paris Agreement.

Re: New Publication: Shaping the water sector to be more climate resilient - A plea for greater and wider collaboration

The plea for collaboration is appreciated and urgently needed.   There is an awareness among WASH professionals that ceramic interventions are among the most appropriate.  Many are unaware, however, that there are long oral traditions of potters all over the developing world, who produce such products as water containers and cook pots.  The potters tend to be highly skilled and eager to learn about new process and products.  They have been limited though, by their laborious hand forming processes.  Once trained in techniques of quick production using models and molds, as well as improved kilns and refractories, they will be able to form candle water filters for subsequent silver treatment.  


Largely because of SDG 1, No Poverty, the potters should also be encouraged to do the simple production of insulating rocket stoves.  There are many synergies in production and implementation of water filters and clean cookstoves together.  A holistic approach to environmental health and development can result from collaboration with the potters, starting with their capacity building.   Communities will gain resilience and self sufficiency once they are familiar with the wide array of products and services that will be made possible.
