SuSanA seminars at AfricaSan 3

SuSanA organised two seminars during AfricaSan 3:

There was a field trip to see sustainable sanitation systems near Kigali (for example UDDTs and biogas systems). This field trip was organised by the Local Organising Committee of AfricaSan 3. To see some photos taken during the field trip have a look at the Sustainable Sanitation gallery (and see map of the field trip location above under "Impressions of the meeting").

Website of AfricaSan 3 for further information about the event.
