Call for Expression of Interest: Sanitation Innovation Challenge (WRC, South Africa)

The South African Department of Water Affairs and Sanitation have partnered with the Water Research Commission to set up the Sanitation Innovation Challenge (SaNIC). The Challenge will provide a mechanism for the evaluation and demonstration of sanitation innovations developed for various settings (urban, peri-urban and rural). We invite out-of-the-box thinkers to put forward innovative solutions to addressing the sanitation challenge in the country by submitting an Expression of Interest letter to the WRC via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). For this Challenge, we seek solutions that are ready for demonstration as sanitation provision is an urgent need. It is envisaged that outcome from this Challenge will provide strong recommendations to national and local government on the appropriateness and effectiveness of the new technologies.

The advertisement and EoI form are attached below.

Re: Call for Expression of Interest: Sanitation Innovation Challenge

The Challenge was launched in May this year and formed part of larger strategy to change conventional thinking on sanitation delivery. The WRC on behalf of the Department of Water and Sanitation launched the "Sanitation Indaba: Its not all about flushing" (Indaba meaning important meeting). We have coined this change in thinking as the Sanitation Revolution in South Africa.
