GWSC would like to invite you to attend the South & Southeast Asia Region Webinar on “Learning from the Experiences of Bangladesh and The Philippines in Management of Treated Wastewater Data.”This webinar is going to be held TODAY( 13th March 2023) from 14:00 to 16:00 hrs Bangkok Time GMT+7 (Virtual).
Wastewater treatment and its monitoring are neglected areas of the water cycle. In general, the sector has suffered from many decades of neglect, which has resulted in woefully inadequate treatment and discharge in many countries. Inadequate wastewater treatment and discharge are causing significant damage to the environment as well as to human health and the economy, even in developed economies. As new threats are also identified in the form of priority and emerging pollutants in urban and industrial (treated) wastewater effluents, strong efforts must be made to improve wastewater management, treatment, and reuse.
The ultimate objective of this framework is to help countries achieve Target 6.3 by promoting wastewater safe treatment and reuse among sanitation and water utilities, through stimulated investment. The program of activities will benefit utilities generating valuable data that, to some extent, are already informing governmental institutions, ministries of water/environment, or equivalent institutions, for the preparation of national statistics on wastewater production and treatment. The Urban Wastewater 2030 initiative will develop and issue a “Call for Action” for governments, water professionals, and financiers to take action on the improvement of sustainable wastewater services and therefore contribute to the SDG 6 Global Framework for Acceleration.
