3rd stakeholder workshop for UNEP/UN-Habitat project: developing guidelines and standards for decentralised wastewater management systems


On 27-28 September 2017, BORDA Africa hosted the third stakeholder workshop in a UNEP/UN-Habitat project to develop guidelines and standards for decentralised wastewater management systems and support the scaling-up of these technologies in Tanzania. Twenty-nine participants attended this two-day event, representing various government ministries and agencies, local government authorities, academic institutions, non-governmental organisations and the private sector.

During the workshop, BORDA presented the outcomes of monitoring and evaluation activities undertaken on 24 selected decentralised sanitation systems throughout Tanzania. 

Additionally, the first draft of the guidelines for standardising decentralised wastewater management systems was presented to workshop participants for review and further input. Feedback and suggestions gathered during the workshop are currently being incorporated into the second draft and will be shared with all sector stakeholders for further comments prior to finalising and disseminating this document.
