Any information on simplified sewerage in africa?
CCI in Tanzania is currently implementing simplified sewerage solutions for informal settlements in Dar-es-Salaam. I wish to know whether there is any experience of this type of sanitation solutions in any other country in Africa
Hello, have a look at the excellent work done by Ps-Eau on this topic: they did a worldwide review of such schemes, highlighting lessons on what makes them work or not (it's almost always down to utility capacity and willingness), as well as a practical guide for implementation. There are case studies from Africa too within the review.
The Ps-Eau document looks useful, I shall be reading it with interest. there has been some simplified sewerage in done in South Africa, initially in Durban and Soweto I think, but I have been able to find out little about it, except that it was not very successful. I have just found a report on the WRC website http://www.wrc.org.za/Pages/DisplayIt... that seems to summarise experience in South Africa and elsewhere.
