Re: Water and sanitation access in France. | Accès à l'eau et à le sanitaire en France

Bonjour Cecile.

Thanks for providing these links. I contacted Toilettes du Monde by email with no reply yet. It appears that they are a version of the French Toilet Association, but I was not able to find any contacts for a French Toilet Association directly. Likewise, I had not heard of RAE, and I'll be contacting them shortly.

Additionally, I had not heard of the Rom settlement in Montrieul. So thanks for letting me know. I found the Rom Europe coalition website and many contacts in Paris there. Again, thanks for your input. It's so useful to have a place like SuSanA to ask others for advice around sanitation globally!

Best Regards.
Abby

Greetings, Florian.

Thanks much for providing me with this fabulous contact. The "Anne Le Strat" presentation is quite forward-thinking, and it seems rare for city officials to be talking about and acting upon such issues (e.g. distribution of jerry cans to those without homes) in the "Global North." In the United States, city officials are often not addressing issues of social access to water and sanitation. Yes, I will also check with Catarina de Albuquerque. Great ideas all around. Thanks again.

Best Regards.
Abby

Re: Water and sanitation access in France. | Accès à l'eau et à le sanitaire en France

Bonjour Abby,

Sur le sujet de l'assainissement / accès aux sanitaires, tu peux regarder le site internet de Toilettes du Monde et celui du Réseau d'Assainissement Ecologique (RAE)où tu trouveras aussi des contacts. Je sais qu'ils ont déjà travaillé sur les problématiques d'accès des Rom aux sanitaires en proposant des toilettes sèches.
Si tu es sur Paris, tu sais peut être qu'il y a un important camp de Roms à Montreuil. Tu pourras trouver des associations qui travaillent avec eux et prendre aussi contact avec la mairie de Montreuil qui suit certainement le sujet.

Bonne continuation pour tes recherches.
Cécile

Dear Abby,
You could consult the websites of these two organisations : Toilettes du Monde and Réseau d'Assainissement Ecologique (RAE)regarding the issues of sanitation. I believe they have ran a project to provide dry toilets to the Rom in the past.
If you are in Paris, you may already know that there is an important Rom settlement in the nearby city of Montreuil. I am sure you can find several associations working with them and also there is certainly someone in charge of these issues in the townhal (mairie.

Re: Water and sanitation access in France. | Accès à l'eau et à le sanitaire en France

Hi Abby,
some time ago I heard an interesting presentation by Anne Le Strat, head of Paris Water Supply: www.unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/env/water/me..._-_Anne_Le_Strat.pdf

Contacing her would be a good start I think.

And of course Catarina de Albuquerque will be able to point you to organisations and people as well: sr-watersanitation.ohchr.org/en/contacts.html

Best regards,
Florian

Water and sanitation access in France, exclusion issues in advanced capitalist countries

Hi SuSanA members.

I am a graduate student at UC Santa Cruz in the United States studying in Paris from June 2014 to September 2014.

I am looking for people and/or organizations here focusing on issues such as: (1) urban planning, water, and sanitation; (2) homelessness; (3) Roma advocacy; or (3) general water and sanitation concerns.

Do you work on these issues in France? Do you know anyone working on these issues in France? If so, I'd love to speak with you more. My email is ablbrown [at] ucsc [dot] edu.

My research focuses on exclusion around water and sanitation in "advanced capitalist countries" (e.g. US, France, and England), and I'm currently conducting preliminary explorations in Paris.

Thanks for fielding this message.
Abby Brown


Bonjour Madame ou Monsieur.

Mon nom est Abigail Brown. Je suis étudiante de troisième cycle á l'Université de Californie aux États-Unis. J'étudie et fais de la recherche à Paris de juin à septembre 2014.

Dans mon université, ma spécialisation est la sociologie. J'étudie pourquoi certains groupes n'ont pas accès à l'eau et aux sanitaires centralisés dans les pays dévelppés (par exemple: France, Angleterre, et les États-Unis).

Pouvons-nous parler s'il vous plaît? Je voudrais visiter votre organisation ou vos espaces de travail à l'extérieur afin de mieux comprendre le problèmes en matières d'accèss à l'eau et aux sanitaires.

Cordialement.
Abby Brown
