The capacity building initiative for ULBs for preparation of city sanitation plans involves forging partnerships with other international labs for knowledge support on setting up a state of art, independent laboratory to develop testing protocols and validation system for wastewater and faecal sludge treatment in India. CSE has entered a need based knowledge partnership for collaborative research, knowledge exchange and capacity building in the area of FSM, waste water management and sanitation systems with three international labs:
Pollution Research Group- University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, South Africa (Read more)
Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok, Thailand (Read more)
Columbia University, New York, U.S.A. (Read more)
The collaboration will involve:
Knowledge Support and Experience Sharing- Labs will provide knowledge support to CSE’s proposed state of art laboratory being set up in India.
Staff Exchange: CSE and the above labs will host short-term visits/trainings for researchers to strengthen capacities from both institutions.
Research and Knowledge Sharing: Institutions will also explore areas for joint research, workshops, seminars for further cooperation.
