Integration of water and sanitation – a challenge to reach sustainability goals
2007 (English)In: Integration and optimisation of urban sanitation systems: Proceedings of Polish-Swedish seminars / [ed] E. Plaza, E. Levlin, 2007, 13-19 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
Possible benefits of integration of water and sanitation are discussed based on results from a Polish-Swedish research co-operation project supported by the Swedish Institute (SI). A relationship exists between total pollution emission and resources depletion, population, produced goods per capita, and pollution emission and resources depletion per unit of goods. As population and products per capita grow pollution emission and resources depletion per unit of goods must decrease significantly each year to comply with sustainability. Integration of water, wastewater, and solid waste handling and its relation to energy is discussed as a way to improve the direction towards sustainability and to use ecology concepts on water and sanitation in municipalities or river basins.
