  • Wastewater Treatment, Plant Dynamics and Management in Constructed and Natural Wetlands

    Wetlands were historically neglected until it was revealed that they could be economically valuable to man. They are one of the most dynamic ecosystems in the world and have many functions for society. For example, natural wetlands provide food staples, building materials, irrigation of agricultural lands, waterways, shelter for wildlife, and a ...

  • Source Separation and Decentralization for Wastewater Management

        Is sewer-based wastewater treatment really the optimal technical solution in urban water management? This paradigm is increasingly being questioned. Growing water scarcity and the insight that water will be an important limiting factor for the quality of urban life are main drivers for new approaches in wastewater management. Source Separation ...

  • Improving Municipal Wastewater Management in Coastal Cities

    In many parts of the world sewage is discharged directly into open water without treatment, threatening productivity and biodiversity of the world’s oceans and causing serious human health problems. In response the UNEP/GPA has developed training for municipal wastewater managers, jointly with the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education and ...

  • Faecal Sludge Management Systems

      It is estimated that literally billions of residents in urban and peri-urban areas of Africa, Asia, and Latin America are served by onsite sanitation systems (e.g. various types of latrines and septic tanks). Until recently, the management of faecal sludge from these onsite systems has been grossly neglected, partially as a result of them being ...
