Introducing the Sanitation and Wastewater Atlas of Africa
The Sanitation and Wastewater Atlas of Africa was launched on 2 February 2021. The product is the flagship result of a four-year project implemented jointly by the African Development Bank (AfDB), GRID-Arendal, and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to better understand the current situation related to wastewater management and sanitation across the African continent. The Atlas consists of different chapters focusing on various aspects of wastewater management, including for example ecosystems, human health, policies and circular economy, and has a section with detailed country profiles. It is a tool that will help policymakers and the wide public across Africa and beyond to better understand and address the current gaps and opportunities in this sector. In order to share the key messages and findings of the atlas, a series of webinars is planned throughout 2021. In this first webinar, three speakers will discuss the process that led to the creation of the Atlas. They will also present its main findings and key messages. Ultimately, the webinar will be an opportunity to discuss the value of addressing wastewater and sanitation challenges. Join the webinar on Tuesday, 2 March 2021, from 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM Nairobi time (EAT). Organizers The webinar is jointly organised the African Development Bank (AfDB), GRID-Arendal and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The webinar will be moderated by Stanley Mubako.
