Sanitation and Water Management in Developing Countries
The general scope of the Group encompasses water supply and sanitation services and their interrelation with river basin management. The Group has a bottom-up approach and identifies regional focal points.
It has identified so far the following focal points:
Africa: sanitation responses to water scarce regions
MENA (Middle East and North Africa): safe wastewater re-use in water scarce regions
South-East Asia: sustainable river management
Middle America and the Caribbean: optimization of water infrastructures and resources, wastewater treatment in urban areas
South America: sustainable management of water and wastewater, sustainable basin management.
The SG is in the process of forming a IWA Working Group on Financially Sustainable Urban Sanitation. Please click here to download the outline of the background, objectives and scope of this WG.
