Training on Decentralized Wastewater Management and Reuse

About the Training

Statistics shows that 80% of water worldwide is released untreated in the environment and this problem is even worse in developing countries such as in India where only 22% of sewage generated is treated. The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) in India has realized the fact that sewerage networks alone cannot help achieve or meet increasing treatment capacity and to meet this demand, decentralized wastewater treatment systemscan be considered as a sustainable and effective solutionto achieve citywide sanitation for all.

Centre for Science and Environment understands its responsibility as a public interest research and advocacy organization and aims to sensitize the various stakeholders working in this sector through its high impact trainings timely. In this endeavor, CSEis organizing a4 days Training programmeon ‘Decentralized Wastewater Management and Reuse’, which aims toeducate government officials who are engaged in facilitating decision-making process in water sector at state and national level, researchers from universities and non-governmental organizations who have the potential to disseminate the knowledge required for scaling up the decentralized wastewater management (focusing on nature based technologies) in the country.

The training programme is divided into different modules to meet different needs of the target groups. These theoretical and practical modules include interactive sessions with leading experts, presentation on case studies and visit to successfully implemented treatment systems. The participants will get the opportunity to plan and design the decentralized systems as part of ‘Do It Yourself’- group exercise.

The 4 days short term residential training is being organized at CSE’s newly built state-of-art facility, AAETI at Nimli, Rajasthan. AAETI is a learning, training and innovation centre designed to find appropriate and affordable solutions to some of the most pressing environmental problems.
