As part of the Water Institute's WaterTalks lecture series, Dr. Caetano Dorea, Professor, Department of Civil Engineering, University of Victoria, will present: Achieving SDG safely managed sanitation services and its implications.
This event is in person in DC 1302 with a lunch reception to follow in DC 1301 (The Fishbowl).
To celebrate World Toilet Day (November 19th) this talk will be themed around Sustainable Development Goal 6.2 which is to achieve universal and equitable access to safely managed sanitation services by 2030. Even if we were on track to achieve this goal, it is unlikely this could be done through centralised sewered sanitation systems. Most of the global population are serviced by non-sewered sanitation systems such as pit latrines and septic systems. I will share some of the research that the Public Health & Environmental Engineering (PH2E) Lab is doing on this theme to better understand these highly used (but rarely researched) sanitation systems and the design and policy implications this could have.
The University of Waterloo is committed to achieving barrier-free accessibility for persons with disabilities who are visiting, studying or working at Waterloo.
