Sanitation and Wastewater

Seminar at Singapore International Water Week 2018 // Dealing with the Sanitation Nexus: The Need for Technology Disruption

Conventionally-reticulated sanitation requires high investment costs and substantial access to energy and water to operate its systems. Against the challenges of water security, availability, climate variability, rising energy costs and growing concerns of new and emerging pathogens, the questions posed are whether this model can be sustainable into the future. At this time, global utilities and governments are increasing their efforts to meet the SDG goals. In regards to sanitation, they will...

FAO Webinar // Nature-Based Solutions for Agricultural Water Management and Food Security

With a rising demand for food, fodder, fiber and bio-energy, the agricultural sector faces fierce competition with households and industry over increasingly scarce water resources. Moreover, for many countries, prospects on improving water availability under changing climatic conditions remain bleak as both droughts and flood hazards are expected to increase. Given the importance of water needs for the sustainable development of the agricultural sector and related food security, calls for a...
