Resource oriented sanitation in drylands


Sanitation coverage is still a challenge in many parts of the World, particularly in low- and middle-income countries with rapidly expanding cities. Safe wastewater treatment and other organic waste such as excreta and manure management represents a growing challenge, generating significant negative public health and environmental risks. Topics such as (but limited) implementation of technologies for small scale wastewater/wet organic waste treatment within decentralized sanitation; health and environmental risks characterization; risk assessment, standards and standardization will be accepted.
