Every year thousands of practitioners and changemakers from around the world gather in Stockholm to address critical global water issues at World Water Week. This year, the conference’s theme is “water and waste: reduce and reuse” and participants will focus on the intersection of the water and sanitation crises with an eye on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
SOIL is honored to be a part of these important conversations to both learn from global experts and to present on the innovative and sustainable container-based sanitation technologies we’ve been developing in Haiti. If you’re in Stockholm this week, we hope you’ll join us for the following seminars tomorrow:
After the Toilet: Facilitating Fecal Sludge Management and Resource Recovery Through Urban Container-Based Sanitation (CBS) with Dr. Sasha Kramer
SOIL has been pioneering container-based sanitation technologies in Haiti since 2006 and is one of the founding members of the Container-Based-Sanitation Alliance, which consists of organizations in six countries that are implementing the end-to end sanitation service that hygienically collects waste from waterless toilets built around sealable, removable containers. CBS interventions are uniquely poised to ensure that dignified, safe, and affordable sanitation is no longer out of the reach for communities in dense, rapidly growing urban areas around the world. SOIL’s Co-Founder and Executive Director Sasha Kramer will provide a holistic view of the global sanitation sector and CBS’ growth worldwide, with a focus on how the technology improves fecal sludge management and resource recovery.
The use of mobile technology has been critical for SOIL’s work to ensure that the delivery our sanitation service, Ekolakay, is efficient and cost-effective. In this session, SOIL’s Systems Director Erica Lloyd will join a panel of global water and sanitation actors to share how we’ve leveraged mobile tools to communicate with EkoLakay customers, gather data, and manage payment collections.
