Ahead of UN World Toilet Day on 19 November, and following on from the Connecting the Unconnected Symposium earlier this year, RECIRCULATE researchers Manoj Roy, Roger Pickup, Ella Foggitt and Nikita Mehta have published an article through the International Water Association.
In their article the team introduces their research-driven, inclusive concept of connecting toilets in low-income settlements to a safe circular water economy. The idea was recently debated at the Connecting the Unconnected symposium at Lancaster University, and subsequently presented in September 2022 at the IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition during a workshop on ‘Learnings from inclusive urban sanitation initiatives’ organised as part of IWA’s Inclusive Urban Sanitation initiative.
The proceedings of the RECIRCULATE symposium can be downloaded here: https://recirculate.global/ctu_proceedings/
The article is also listed under the World Toilet Day Stories webpage.
