The College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology (CEDAT) in Uganda is involved in inter-disciplinary sanitation technology research including treatment systems, societal aspects, gender issues, social marketing, sustainable sanitation.
Several colleges are involved in teaching, research and consultancy in topics relating to sustainable sanitation, mainly the College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology. Staff and students are often involved in inter-disciplinary research in the areas of sanitation technology including treatment systems, societal aspects including gender issues, social marketing, as well as financial and economic aspects of sustainable sanitation.
Project examples (lead researcher is Charles Niwagaba):
- Project partner on the Project FaME (Faecal Management Enterprises): providing sanitation solutions through value chain management of faecal sludge (studying its applicability in the cement production process by utilising its calorific value or the lower heating value).
- Project partner on the Project UACT - Economic Constraints and Demand-Led Solutions for Sustainable Sanitation Services in Poor Urban Settlements. U-ACT empirically tests various interventions in randomised controlled trials in the low-income areas of Uganda’s capital, Kampala.
- "Waste to worth" in Uganda where fly larvae convert manure (animal and human) and organic waste into protein rich animal feed.
