The coronavirus pandemic has proven that everybody must have access to public health and clean water, so that nobody is left out and nobody can be the carrier of the virus. We know that massive numbers of people in rural regions do not have access to clean water. But what is worse is that if faecal sludge is not safely treated and reused, it will end up contaminating the available sources of water, reducing supply or adding to the health burden of communities. This is why this work becomes so critical, particularly in the COVID-19 world.

Further Description / Program

CSE has launched an "Global Online Training Course Toilet Technologies and Faecal Sludge and Water Management in Rural Areas" between February 20 to March 6, 2021.

The course comprises self-study, technological learning tools such as presentations and audios and videos featuring case studies.
