News and updates from WASTE advisers on urban environment and development
Editorial

WASTE celebrates its 30th anniversary this month. 30 years of working in the urban setting in more than 50 countries around the world. During these 30 years much has changed and we have taken some time to reflect on our past, while at the same time we are focusing on new challenges and projects. Our young project SAWI for instance, has just launched its own dedicated website. The FINISH programme in India has o be successful and the concept is now being implemented in Kenya. Also SAWI our new project,. Our interns have delivered some interesting products, which can be made good use of in our work.
This bulletin gives a short overview on some of these issues.

Feel free to pass this bulletin on to others, this can be done via the footer. If you have any comments please send them to webmaster@waste.nl


SAWI website now online!

SAWI connects sanitation supply and demand, with the specific focus to match ‘western sanitation technologies’ with sanitation demand in low and middle income markets in Africa, Asian or Latin American countries. To accelerate innovation in sanitation markets the Sanitation Window (SAWI) was established in cooperation with WASTE and Aqua for All

A dedicated website has been set up to explain more about the services SAWI can offer. We invite you to have a look, especially if you are a European company offering a sanitation solution and you are interested to explore the emerging markets! Or if you are a company in an 'emerging market' country with a demand around sanitation and you are interested in technologies, products and services.

Please have a look at the website and give us your comments. www.sanitationwindow.com.
