The course starts with an introduction about integrated sanitation planning, dealing with citywide planning as well as with planning for specific contexts such as informal settlements. After presenting different sanitation planning frameworks you will learn about the different systems and technologies – the key terminology and concepts and why systems’ thinking is crucial for urban environmental sanitation. The course covers the whole sanitation chain providing detailed information about appropriate sanitation systems (e.g. waterless pit-based, decentralized water-based, black water transport).
Eawag-Sandec and EPFL jointly offer this course with sanitation experts from the World Bank and WHO.
We simultaneously offer this course in English and French. The name of the French course is « Planification & Design des Systèmes et Technologies d’Assainissement ».
