World Water Day, observed annually on 22 March, is a day celebrate water, to help make a difference for those who suffer from water-related issues, and a day to prepare for the water issues of the future.
Water is foundational to sustainable development -- from health, to climate, to industry, to equity, and more.
The theme for World Water Day 2017 is Water and Waste. In honour of World Water Day, we hosted a learning webinar on Tuesday, 21 March, at 1200h GMT, focused on innovations for waste and wastewater management. We heard from Ajeek Oak, Director at PriMove Infrastructure Consultants, about their innovative Tiger Toilet they are using in India. We then heard from Dr. Fungai Makoni, our new WASH Technical Advisor in East Africa, about his past research on Urban Wastewater Management in Developing Countries. Finally, we heard from Deborah Muheka from WV Malawi about their recent work dealing with greywater reuse.
