Topics that deal with diseases caused by lack of sanitation, for example neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), can be discussed here. There is a sub-sub-category specifically for intestinal worm infections.
The focus in this categories is on technologies required along the sanitation chains - primarily toilets, transport and treatment (but not reuse as this is in a separate category called "Resource recovery").
In this category questions about decentralised treatment facilities and their quality standards are discussed – with special focus on upscaling. This category will also feature experiences of the GIZ programme “Upscaling Basic Sanitation for the Urban Poor” in Kenya.
This category contains topics on market development, financing and governance: core functions of supply and demand in the market, supporting and rules functions. Governance and global political processes are also included in this category; they are market players as well as drivers.
The focus in this category is on technological, institutional and social aspects surrounding resource recovery from sanitation systems, be it for fertiliser, soil conditioner, water, fuel, electricity or biomass.
This section is for organisational aspects of the SuSanA working groups (such as information about meetings or minutes) and not for thematic discussions which should rather take place in the other categories of the forum.
