Re: Fecal Sludge & Waste Water Impact on Marine Environments

Dear Andrew,
thank you so much for sharing those valuable reports! They provide an excellent overview about this topic.
I think they also deserve to be uploaded on the SuSanA library and I will coordinate with the SuSanA Secretariat to do so.

Best regards,
Anne

Re: Fecal Sludge & Waste Water Impact on Marine Environments

Dear all,
in February 2020, the SuSanA WG4&WG6 convened during the AfWA conference in Kampala (the meeting documentation is available here .
One of the topics, we discussed during the meetings was the Source-to-Sea approach, which is currently piloted by SIWI in Ethiopia and Vietnam (more information about the project here ).
The Source-to-Sea approach is a governance paradigm, across geographical borders, that fosters cross-sectoral cooperation and takes into consideration the various interlinkages that exists between the land systems and the open sea. At first sight, the approach focuses on reducing the pollution of the ocean with solid waste / plastic waste, but it can be also useful in addressing problems arising from improper management of wastewater and sanitation.  
The GIZ sustainable sanitation programme, has been taking a closer look at the source-to-sea approach from a wastewater and sanitation perspective, and drafted a short discussion paper on this topic.
Some parts of it have been presented at the WG4/WG6 meeting in Kampala and I am pleased to share the whole paper with you.
Any feedback regarding the paper is warmly welcome, as well as your experiences in preventing wastewater and faecal sludge entering the oceans and any other ideas on the topic.

Special thanks to Andrew Whitesell for having started this discussion and sharing various resources on the topic. You are cited in the attached discussion paper.

Dear Andrew,

I'd link to link you with ZMT (Center for Marine Sciences, Bremen, Germany). Their interdisciplinary approach (ecological, economical and social science) is helpful in connecting the different sectors by on the ground research.

Specifically at least 1 PhD fellow Marie Fujitani (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) is currently investigating the impact of untreated wastewater for the tourism sector (Eastern Africa/Tansania, Indonesia).
Feel free to contact her directly.

Kind regards,
Alex

Re: Fecal Sludge & Waste Water Impact on Marine Environments

Hi all,

 I know this is an old thread but I came upon it and I thought I would share some relevant information. I am leading a working group of scientists, practitioners, technical experts, and development partners in the fields of sanitation, engineering, water quality, and marine conservation ( https://snappartnership.net/teams/improving-coastal-health/ ). Our work is part of a broader coalition to improve collaboration across the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and conservation sectors to better achieve public and ecosystem health outcomes. Please visit The Ocean Sewage Alliance website for more information.

We have just launched a needs assessment survey to identify current barriers to collaboration between the marine conservation and sanitation sectors and to hear your ideas on the resources you need to help you implement ocean-friendly sanitation interventions and reduce wastewater pollution entering marine environments.

I encourage you to fill it out!
