Decentralized Domestic Wastewater Treatment Workshop
Sustainable Development Goals 6.3 states that by 2030 the proportion of untreated wastewater will be halved. The problem of untreated wastewater exists both in developing countries and developed countries, and it is necessary to shift decentralized domestic wastewater treatment from low-tech systems to high-tech systems to achieve the SDG 6.3.
This workshop is intended to share the knowledge and experience of high-tech packaged plants for decentralized domestic wastewater treatment in both developed and developing countries. At the same time, discuss issues and countermeasures of how to spread high-tech packaged plants in Asia-Pacific region for achieving the SDG 6.3.
Light refreshments will be served 12.30 – 1.00pm
Resource Orientated Sanitation Workshop
Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) is to achieve water and sanitation for all by 2030.
