Fostering safe and sustainable water and sanitation solutions
Rapid urbanisation in developing countries have seen many of the people migrating to the cities and ended up living in urban slum areas where governments struggle to provide effective water and sanitation systems. One of the major issues affecting water utilities is the considerable level of “non-revenue water” (NRW), which the financial viability of water utilities through lost revenues and increased operational costs.
Sanitation solution for urban slums where access to sewage network is almost non-existent, amid technology implementation, needs to address cost, space and the wider environment issues like waste and disposal. Sustainable sanitation solutions decrease environmental pollution, prevent the transmission of water-related diseases, and support economic and social development.
