Our School Activity Collection assembles various activities on the vital topics of WASH, energy conservation, biodiversity and waste management.
Work in progress: Each pin stands for a library document that is specific to a location. We are currently in the process of adding more pins to existing publications in our library. 8 library entries have a pin so far.

By mid-century, the global urban population is projected to increase by 2.4 billion people with 60% of growth expected to take place in cites of sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and South Asia (SA) (UN-DESA, 2015). These regions have some of the lowest rates of urban sanitation coverage and modern fuel access, with only 41% and 67% estimated to have access to improved sanitation and 19% and 55% estimated …

Pressing water scarcity in Jordan rapidly increases the demands of marginal water resources for the agricultural sector. Water management studies reveal that no single source could fully solve the nation’s water shortage and many integrated actions are needed to ensure water availability, suitability and sustainability. Yet, among these options treated wastewater has the largest potential to …

Pressing water scarcity in Jordan increased the demands of marginal water for agriculture, of which the treated wastewater is the most prominent candidate. Meanwhile, agriculture is an important economic activity in Jordan where treated wastewater could be a valuable source for irrigation in the agricultural sector. The reuse as percentage of total treatment as index which is of limited use for …

The principal objective of this document is to assess the scaling-up-potential of DEWATS technology and to identify bottle-necks which need to be addressed to improve sanitation in an urban environment that is widely deprived from proper sanitation services.
The following assessment is based on the Technology-Applicability-Framework (TAF) developed by SKAT, Switzerland and was conducted in …

Wastewater characteristics for developing countries are usually either very generalising, outdated or only applicable in a limited context under specific circumstances.
The goal of this assignment is to review and collate accessible data on DEWATS design parameters in developing countries and where possible to classify it depending on country and income group in order to
• identify …
This Manual is intended for use by the beneficiaries of DEWATS, in particular caretakers and operators. Each operational task is addressed in terms of where and when it will occur, how the task should be performed and why it is needed. Simple information about DEWATS modules and how they function is outlined in the Appendix 1.0. For further information which may be beyond the scope of this …

This project has studied the appropriateness of the ABR for on-site primary sanitation in low-income communities. The baffled design of the ABR ensures high solids retention resulting in high treatment rates, while the overall sludge production is characteristically low. Effluent COD values measured from a 3 000 l pilot ABR using domestic wastewater at a wastewater treatment works were …

BORDA-DEWATS constitutes the treatment element of a sanitation concept that starts with the individual user interface, the toilet, and continues with a simplified sewer system that connects a neighbourhood of less than 10 households up to a few hundred households. The collected wastewater then enters the treatment stage. Solid matter sediments under anaerobic conditions and decomposes by …
