Sustainable and Low-Cost Sanitation
The aim of the course is to understand possibilities and limitations to avert the present sanitation crises for humans and the environment in expanding urban and peri-urban areas. The students become familiar with approaches to analyse impacts of management choices, nature’s responses and available technologies on achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals for sanitation. The course is interdisciplinary and strongly related to international research. Management issues at society and household levels are combined with various technical arrangements of flows of used water and organic ‘waste’ products from households and the reuse of nutrients and water for e.g. food production. This course will also focus on technical design of sanitation systems including collection and treatment arrangements as well as flows of used nutrients and water in society.
