Great video! by Water For People, sure there are a lot of little details not mentioned, but you can not do better for a 5 minute video.
Stockholm, Sweden – Dr. Peter Morgan has been named the 2013 Stockholm Water Prize Laureate for his work to protect the health and lives of millions of people through improved sanitation and water technologies.
H.M. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden will present the prize to Dr. Peter Morgan at a Royal Award Ceremony during the 2013 World Water Week in Stockholm on September 5.
Over the past four decades, Dr. Morgan has invented and advanced low-cost practical solutions to provide access to safe sanitation and clean water that are being used by millions of people worldwide.
“Many currently existing solutions to provide clean water and sanitation are unaffordable, impractical and out of reach for the world’s poorest people,” said the Stockholm Water Prize Committee in its citation. “As a result of Dr. Morgan’s pioneering work to develop practical water and sanitation technologies for those most in need, countless communities now enjoy safer water, a cleaner environment and quality of life.” more: site or pdf press release and Highlights from ceremony

Title: Urban sanitation in low income countries: what are the main lessons learned by INGO’s from past failures or successes?
By: SanCoP UK
When: Wednesday 11th September, 4-7pm
Where: London (exact location TBC once numbers are confirmed.)
Reservation: please send an email to sancop.uk @gmail.com if you wish to attend.
Urban contexts are very challenging and require specific adaptations of the approaches used by INGOs for the sanitation component of their WASH programmes. Important practical lessons can be learned from past experiences including failures. This event firstly aims to brings together representatives from INGOs and the WASH community to discuss their experiences of interventions relating to sanitation in urban areas within low-income countries (both successes and failures). Once experiences have been shared the session will look to identify and discuss possible solutions to any limitations found.
It is hoped that as many participants as possible will present examples of their experiences (both positive and negative) in urban sanitation to the workshop and round table discussions will take place to identify how interventions could have been improved and in moving forward how urban sanitation could be better tackled by INGO’s.
the next SanCoP UK event will be hosted by Cranfield University on Wednesday 20th November 2013 with the broad theme of ‘Behaviour Change in Sanitation’. Cranfield University will be organising a bus from Milton Keynes train station on the day to make transfer to the University site easier. The following day (21st) Cranfield will be hosting a young researchers in WASH conference which may also be of interested to some of our members. More details of both events will be shared shortly- but please get the dates in your diaries.
