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

Will be in Stockholm and will be happy to share experiences on one of the worlds largest treated wastewater transfer for agricultural use happening in my city Bengaluru, India. 770 million litres per day of treated wastewater will be transferred to fill around 300 lakes and be used for recharge of groundwater and then be used for agriculture.

Re: Documentation of SuSanA Working Group 5 meeting at World Water Week 2019 in Stockholm

Dear WG5 members and friends,
During the recent Stockholm World Water Week, members of WG5 participated in a couple of meetings to discuss issues related to the working group topic. The first meeting was during the working groups discussion session at the 28th SuSanA Meeting on 24th August 2019 at the History Museum. The other meeting was specifically a WG5 meeting and was held at the Quality Globe Hotel on 28th August. A summary of discussions and outcomes of the two meetings is shared below.

WG session on SuSanA Meeting - 24th August 2019
In this session, the questions discussed were; "How would you like the WG5 network to support your work? How will you make use of the WG5 network in your work?" The main issues discussed were the ones listed below;
▪ How to get policy makers and other stakeholders interested in resource recovery
▪ Share success stories from utilities that are implementing resource recovery
▪ Knowledge exchange about creating standards for governing resource recovery within sanitation at national and local levels

WG5 Meeting on 28th August 2019
Participation: the meeting involved a diverse set of participants from across academia, NGOs, public sector institutions and the private sector.

Presentations: an introduction to the meeting with an overview of WG5 was made by Daniel Ddiba, one of the WG5 co-leads. Afterward, brief presentations were made by some participants about ongoing work and projects which are connected to the WG5 topic in various parts of the world. There was a brief question and answer session after the presentation. Slides from these presentation are shared at the web links below:
▪ Daniel Ddiba (Stockholm Environment Institute) - Overview of SuSanA Working Group 5
▪ Mónica García Aguilar (Colombia - Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences/Stockholm Environment Institute) - Assessing governance for the implementation of resource-oriented sanitation and waste management practices in Chia (Colombia)
▪ Priska Prasetya (The Netherlands - Waste) - The SWFF - FINISH Mondial business model in Faecal Sludge Management for agriculture
▪ Scott Chen (China - Apple Farmer) - The Yang Cheng Toilet Revolution and Agriculture in China
▪ Vishwanath Srikantaiah (India - Biome Environmental Trust) - From Shit to Silk: the reuse of untreated wastewater and faecal sludge in a small town - the nudge approach

Discussions:
About updating the WG5 Factsheet, the following were the outcomes of the discussions according to the guiding questions.
1. What do you see as the purpose of a factsheet? Who should use this factsheet, and for what?
○ The revised factsheet should not be more than 1 page
○ Could we have a wiki instead of a factsheet? Or can we have both?
○ The purpose of the factsheet should be to enable a simple understanding for all kinds of stakeholders about resource recovery practices, benefits and challenges

2. What should be removed or added within the previous structure/outline?
○ The revised factsheet should include examples of real-life business cases for resource recovery, perhaps with reference to the IWMI book of business models for resource recovery from organic waste
○ The revised factsheet should include specific recommendations for faecal sludge management analysis of end products if they are used for edible crops

3. What new ideas, examples, case studies, references etc which relate to productive sanitation would you like to see included in a new version of the factsheet?
○ Add a reference to WHO sanitation safety planning
○ Include some success stories about sanitation and food security from India and China
○ Include some rule of thumb calculations to estimate nutrients availability in faecal sludge generated by a certain number of population in an area
○ Include links to tools related to resource recovery and reuse of faecal sludge and organic waste
○ Include examples of regional and local regulations that promote the reuse of excreta and wastewater for different purposes e.g. from Latin America
○ Include some discussion about how to apply examples of social behavioral change towards more resource recovery
○ The factsheet could expand the discussion about resource recovery and aquaculture since fish is one of the best ways to grow protein. This is already being done in Asia and there could be examples from other regions in the world.
○ The factsheet could include some discussion about resource recovery in emergency contexts e.g. refugee camps

4. What can you contribute towards updating the factsheet? (Mention specific activity, timeline and include your contact info for follow-up)
○ A few participants indicated their interest in contributing to the process of revising the factsheet. If you would like to be involved, please contact the WG5 co-leads [gitchon(at)xu(dot)edu(dot)ph AND daniel.ddiba(at)sei(dot)org]

Next steps for WG5
The immediate next step is to explore hosting a webinar or two around the WG5 topic in relation to standards and regulation and how those affect resource recovery from sanitation and global, national and local levels. If you have experiences with standards in connection to resource recovery from sanitation and organic waste and would like to participate in such a webinar to share your knowledge, please get in touch with WG5 co-lead [daniel.ddiba(at)sei(dot)org]

Thank you to all who participated in these meetings and to the SuSanA Secretariat for the tremendous support in organizing the meetings.

Regards,
Gina & Daniel
