Re: Integrated plannning of varied waste streams

As we commemorate the international Day of Zero Waste on 30th March this year. I thought to bring this conversation back to the top. Particularly highlighting how different Sanitation waste streams interact in this diagram extracted from Mugendi's post: 



She also in her blog highlights some really useful tools that are relevant to waste management in the sanitation sector. 

1. Shit Flow Diagram (SFD): is mainly a sanitation service assessment tool, but it also considers the groundwater situation.
2. Waste Flow Calculator: is a rapid assessment tool for faecal waste quantification. 
3. City Service Delivery Assessment (CSDA) and 4. Urban Sanitation Status Index (USSI): These are two complementary tools for sanitation service assessment:
5. City MSW rapid assessment & collection tool, 6.  Waste flow diagram and 7. Waste Wise City Tool: For solid waste assessment,  The Waste Flow Diagram mainly considers plastic waste for planning, while the Waste Wise City Tool specifically includes the generation of food waste.  
8. WASHCost 9. CLARA Planning Tool and 10.  Life-Cycle Cost: WASH and Sanitation decision support tools.

Re: Integrating waste streams

This is fantastic work Ann. Thank you for sharing.

I would add CEPT University's SANIPLAN to your list of tools. It enables planning for drinking water supply, sanitation, SWM, and storm water management sectors both individually and in an integrated manner. Further, the plan can be integrated with the finances of the service provider and outputs foreseen in terms of improvements in service levels. It is the most comprehensive tool in my opinion.  I was part of the team that developed and tested the tool, and we used it extensively for preparing city sanitation plans of 4 towns in Maharashtra.

I would encourage interested members to check the resources available on their website cwas.org.in/ to know more about the tool, its approach, and applications.

Kind regards

Re: Integrating waste streams

This is a useful review for our work on integrating water and waste streams, at Eawag (www.sandec.ch/integrate). We hope to build on this further to evaluate which planning tools and approaches are more usable for an integrated planning process. 

Thank you for sharing. 

Best

Integrated plannning of varied waste streams

Faecal, greywater and solid waste have been managed separately over the years making it difficult to effectively manage these wastes due to their overlaps. Despite the many tools available for managing these wastes, none of the tools reviewed found an assessment tool that looks at all three streams with equal importance and can identify the points where one waste stream joins another. Without such a tool, it is difficult to advocate for integrated planning of waste and planning of urban infrastructure. 
I conducted a literature review on the existing waste tools and created this blog on   Integrated waste management assessment and planning

Kindly read and share your views.

Thank you
