SuSanA workshop on Emergency Sanitation
AirCell Structures founder Michael Messenger gave an R&D presentation to Aid Agency representatives at the Emergency Sanitation forum in Delft.
The workshop itself was structured according to the three links of the sanitation chain:
Day 1: Raised latrines
Day 2: Desludging equipment
Day 3: disposal and treatment
Each of the days consisted of a problem definition of the specific topics, a variety of pitch presentations, where suppliers of sanitation equipment presented their solution to the problem and an intensive workshop time slot where the participants were asked to brainstorm and design a sanitation solution for a given scenario and give input to a list of specifcations that will be used in the design and development of (post-)emergency sanitation kits. The list of specifications is part of the outcome of a project funded by the Dutch government.
