AIT Global Water and Sanitation Center (GWSC) is pleased to inform you about the upcoming 6 webinars on Asian Region Collaborative Framework to Operationalize Utility-based Wastewater Monitoring & Management in Support of Increased Investment to Attain the SDGs in the month of November 2022. Please find the attached file for the list of webinars.
In this regard we would like to invite you to attend the Webinar #1 on Wastewater Monitoring & Data Management SDG 6.3.1. This webinar will be held on the 3rd November 2022, 14:00 to 16:10 hrs Bangkok Time GMT+7 (Virtual).
Wastewater treatment and its monitoring are a neglected area 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 on human
health and 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 and 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 improvement of sustainable wastewater services and therefore contributing to the SDG 6 Global Framework for Acceleration.
