Food production and settlement hygiene in poor peri-urban regions in India
Nexus Project – Food Production and Settlement Hygiene in Poor Peri-Urban Regions in India - creates the missing link between safe sanitation and food production, to enable the safe reuse of products from various sanitation systems. The project is jointly implemented by CDD Society Bangalore and BORDA. Now, in the third and final year of the project period, the aim is to mainstream and scale up the practices established in Nexus pilot-scale interventions, and to share the gained knowledge and experiences with a wider audience.
The demonstration projects are to be established under four main concepts:
DEWATS (Decentralised Wastewater Treatment Systems)
Intervention for enhancing nourishment among children and women in peri-urban communities.
Faecal Sludge Treatment
Intervention for Settlement Hygiene and reuse of treated and co-composted sludge in agriculture
UDDT (Urine Diverting Dry Toilets/”EcoSan”)
Intervention for reuse of EcoSan products in agriculture
Risk Mitigation measures
Intervention in reuse of untreated wastewater in food production
