Closing the loop- Mainstreaming agriculture in the WASH discourse
This two-day network meeting will be conducted by EcoPro and CDD Society on 17th and18th of June in Auroville with a site visit to a village in
Tindivanam, Pondicherry. This network meeting aims to provide a platform for different stakeholders in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene sector and
Agriculture sector to come together for an interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge.
Among the speakers will be medical doctors, agriculturists, farmers, promoters of ecological sanitation and users of ecosan toilets to discuss the opportunities and challenges in reuse of ecosan products in agriculture. The proposed outcome is to acquire better understanding of linkages between ecological sanitation and agriculture, to explore the nuances across policies and regulations in this respect and to reach a consensus on how to effectively close the nutrient loop between agriculture and sanitation.
CDD Nexus Team and EcoPro are looking forward to constructive discussions!

4th International Faecal Sludge Management (FSM4) Conference to be held early 2017 in Chennai, India
After the success of the first three International FSM Conferences in Hanoi (2015) and Durban (2011& 2012), FSM4 aims to bring together professionals working in the sector, including utilities, service providers, cities, governments, academics, scientists, consultants, donors and industries, to support the global initiative of disseminating sustainable solutions for FSM.
The idea is to share and brainstorm potential solutions that will manage faecal sludge, preventing it from creating any harm to the environment, to formulate policy recommendations that promote best practices, and to identify lessons learned in how to make FSM an integral part of sanitation service delivery.
