This blog aims to regularly report experiences, stories and questions on sustainable water supply and sanitation. The blog is a forum for asking questions and provoking debate on how sustainability of water and sanitation systems can be improved. It seeks to provide examples and learn from failures. It does not aim to provide ready-made answers; if those would exist, they would win the Nobel Prize for Water, or, more likely, the Silver Bullet Award.

IRC Thematic Blogs
IRC Thematic BlogsThe International Water and Sanitation Center (IRC) publishes seven thematic blogs on sanitation. They are used as platforms for sharing, promotion and use of knowledge on the sector.

Sustainable Sanitation in Emergency & Reconstruction

Sustainable Sanitation in Emergency & ReconstructionThis blog is meant to collect new developments and innovations about sustainable sanitation in emergencies and reconstruction situations. A lot of important information is circulating in the field through individual pilots, informal networks, email and personal communication, and too little information is found synthesised and published, even in grey literature. This blog was therefore created to capture some of this information and collect it in one place and in that way try to stimulate information sharing and networking between practitioners.

Duncan Mara's Sanitation blog

This is the SANITATION blog from Duncan Mara with around 200 entries on various sanitation related aspects. Duncan Mara is a professor of civil engineering at the University of Leeds in England currently. He has been working on low-cost sanitation in developing countries since the mid-1970s, and also on low-cost wastewater treatment and reuse.




Saniblog started off as an open blog in November 2007 to celebrate the International Year of Sanitation in 2008. The initial motivation was to have a platform for sanitation-related news as there were no other blogs covering this special topic way back in 2007.
