FSMA Spotlight Series #5: Climate Resilient Sanitation in Low-Income Countries

Climate change is with us. Flood, drought and rising sea levels is already creating risks for sanitation systems – from toilets to septic tanks to treatment plants. Low-income communities are at the highest risk, often situated in low-lying areas or adjacent to waterways. Are our current technology choices the right ones, given this situation? Are our associated services like emptying resilient in times of extreme weather? Come and learn about how leading cities are addressing these challenges, and contribute to shaping the direction we all need to take to better address climate change in FSM and sanitation work.
