Linking Food Production and Sanitation

Cooperation Between Farmers and Municipality

Based on a successful study tour for World Water Week in 2012, SIANI has been invited to organize a tour for 2013. The study tour is the result of a collaboration established by the successful SIANI expert group, which focused on the productive linkages between Sanitation and Agriculture.

This tour will focus on the linkage between agriculture and the sanitation systems in Sweden, demonstrated by a new project that has been developed in close cooperation between the municipality of an, the Federation of Farmers and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. The research in sustainable sanitation and safe reuse of wastewater in crop production has an established history in Sweden but has not yet managed to scale up systems on a municipal level. In order to close the loop on sanitation, wastewater has to be seen as a nutrient resource. This process needs actors from many different sectors to cooperate and stakeholders from agriculture have to be involved from the beginning. This visit gives you an opportunity to meet experts and researchers and also discuss the case of blackwater reuse with farmers and local politicians.

Price: 400 SEK (transportation and refreshments are included)
