Access to safe water is of critical importance in these times of the pandemic. Large parts of subSaharan Africa grappling with the challenges of open defecation and resultant water contamination ± in Uganda, for instance, over 75 per cent of the population lives in rural areas and a mere 7 per cent of the sanitation systems in these areas can be considered safe. There is a dire need for safe disposal, treatment and reuse of faecal sludge in this region.
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), a New Delhi (India)-based think tank, invites you to join its webinar to discuss challenges of providing sanitation systems and services in rural areas in Africa, and the kind of institutional support structures and technological options required to meet them. CSE will also be releasing its new report, which outlines a set of recommendations with specific reference to Uganda, on this occasion. These recommendations are relevant, however, for much of the sub-Saharan region which faces a similar predicament.
CSE has been working on the subject of rural sanitation in Africa and India for many years. To learn more about its programmes, please click here
We look forward to seeing you at the webinar.
