2021/01/21 8th International Workshop on Decentralized Wastewater Treatment in Asia: Water-borne Diseases and Disasters

 

  Since early in the 2020, COVID-19 has spread out and effected whole around the world. In the wastewater management field, it is still not clear how COVID -19 will behave and affect the human health, although it has been reported that the appropriate wastewater treatment such as activated sludge method with disinfection will significantly reduce the concentration of COVID-19 in the effluent water.
Moreover, disasters such as Typhoon and heavy rain are occurred more often these days, those disasters also threaten our life. Under these emergent situations, wastewater management would be more important than usual to prevent the water borne diseases outbreak.

In this Webinar, we would like to focus on those 2 big themes.
In Session A, we will share the information and current research outcome regarding the Water-borne Diseases. All participants are expected to understand the risk of water-borne diseases derived from decentralized wastewater treatment and to discuss the countermeasures.
In Session B, panelists will share the knowledge and case study based on Japan's experience in human waste and wastewater management under disasters such as floods and earthquakes.
On behalf of the Organizer of this Wibinar, Ministry of the Environment Government of Japan (MOEJ), JECES is pleased to introduce the information on this event as below.
