This discussion will examine a few aspects of the waste water economy. In November 2018, the SuSanA India Chapter, IRC and TARU organised a face-to-face ‘Insights Discussion’ on sharing experiences on waste water challenges and solutions, facilitated by the Ecosan Services Foundation, in Mumbai. That discussion brought out five issues – setting standards for using waste water and sewage, faecal sludge treatment is not cheaper than sewage treatment, it has been a challenge getting companies involved in waste water treatment, ownership of waste water and alternative financing mechanisms.
This thematic discussion took a deeper looker at setting standards and alternative financing mechanisms. Alka Palrecha from the NGO People In Centre steered the first sub-topic while Sharada Prasad from the Azim Premji University in Bengaluru steered the second.
Topic 1: Standards for Institutionalizing use of Wastewater in Irrigation
Topic 2: Financing Capital and Running Costs
