Sanitation is one of
the most off-track MDGs and progress in urban sanitation is proving especially
difficult to achieve. The traditional response for
improving urban sanitation is typically based on a master planning approach
which has widely failed to meet the needs of low-income communities living in
slums, who cannot afford to pay the expected charges for service improvements.
In this course you will learn how to plan for affordable and context-specific sanitation solutions using some state-of-the-art sector planning tools and frameworks such as Sanitation 21, Community-Led Urban Environmental Sanitation (CLUES) and the Sanitation Systems Approach. By using exercises and concrete examples, participants will learn how to choose appropriate sanitation systems and technologies for a variety of urban contexts.
This MOOC is a collaboration of Sandec/Eawag and EPFL. It is the 2nd MOOC of the series on "WASH in developing countries".Version française: Le cours en bref - Planification & design des systèmes et technologies d’Assainissement
WEEK 1: Introduction to Urban
About this course; Introduction to urban environmental sanitation in low- and middle-income countries; Main differences between rural and urban sanitation; The case for improved sanitation planning & programming; Why enabling environments are a precondition for sector progress; Examples of state of the art planning approaches.
WEEK 2: Introduction to Sanitation
Introduction to sanitation systems including system templates, functional groups and products. Difference between wet and dry systems; Using the eCompendium planning tool, participants will practice their skills in building a complete sanitation system from user interface to disposal or re-use of products.
WEEK 3: Overview of Sanitation Technologies
Introduction to different technologies from each functional group: user interface; collection; conveyance; treatment and use/reuse. Featuring concrete examples from Africa, Asia and Latin America for a large variety of technologies.
4: Implementing the Systems Approach
Examples of complete sanitation system configurations: successful and failed examples. Individual exercise: propose a sanitation system for a selected (slum) site.
WEEK 5: Wrap-up, On-line planning
Q&A session: what are key elements for sustainable sanitation in urban contexts?, Wrap-up module, final exam.
Learn more about how to plan for urban sanitation at city and local/community levels, different sanitation system and technology configurations and examples of successful and failed urban sanitation systems in low- and middle-income countries.
