Webinar: Container-Based Sanitation Solutions
As the population of urban slums around the world expands, so does the risk of public health catastrophes associated with poor sanitation. A webinar organized by the Water, Health and Development Program at Stanford showcased the role container-based sanitation (CBS) can play in areas without conventional household toilets or sewage systems. A panel of experts working in Haiti, Kenya and Ghana discussed their experiences and findings on this innovative approach to safely managing human waste, including recent studies showing residents of low-income communities are willing to pay for subscription CBS services. The webinar introduced the CBS concept, described case studies and offered a moderated Q&A.
Moderator: Jenna Davis, Water, Health and Development Program Co-Founder and Faculty Lead; the Higgins-Magid Senior Fellow, Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, and Associate Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Stanford University. Featured panelists: Sasha Kramer, Co-founder and Executive Director, Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL), Andy Narracott, Deputy Director for Global Safe Water, Evidence Action, and David Auerbach and Ani Vallabhaneni, Co-Founders, Sanergy.
