SHARE WATER 11

This eleventh issue of the African Water Association’s bi-annual bilingual technical journal “SHARE WATER” explores innovative solutions and best practices for building resilient and sustainable African cities. The various articles, including a brilliant case study on faecal sludge recovery practices for a circular economy in Senegal, focus on the steps to be taken to achieve inclusive sanitation at the scale of cities in Africa. In addition, alternative solutions to water stress are proposed for a better management of water resources: The Windhoek wastewater reuse model, inter-communality underpinned by the ATPC (Assainissement Total Piloté par la Communauté) approach which leads to the establishment of a technical water and sanitation department in a Niger commune, molecular bi-oiling for high quality PVC pipes that comply with international standards, the production of drinking water from ambient air or solar water treatment in four West African countries.
