Chair: Ingeborg Krukkert, IRC Water and Sanitation Centre, The Netherlands

The ambitious challenge of the SDGs means that traditional boundaries between rural and urban utility management and operation are blurring together. 

So too are the pressures, constraints and issues affecting those who work with or depend on those systems and services. IRC, International Water and Sanitation Centre takes a holistic approach to understanding utility services - one that is based upon a framework that considers the key ‘building blocks’ that connect utilities to wider water and sanitation systems. 

In this workshop, IRC will present its approach to thinking about these systems and explore how a systemic outlook can be developed.

Taking a systemic approach to utility service delivery is about actions that amplify your own impact. In this workshop, IRC will present case study examples of how systemic approaches are leading to change in the way urban and rural utilities operate. This interactive session will explore how you can take a systemic approach to your role and ways in which practical tools and approaches can be used to deliver better water and sanitation services.

In this workshop, IRC will present its approach to thinking about these systems and explore how a systemic outlook can be developed.

Digitalisation, namely the use of digital technologies in day to day operations, is reshaping the water sector and enabling urban services to seamlessly connect through their value chain. 

Besides the many opportunities that this transition implies to increase resilience and sustainability, the implementation of digital tools also creates new threats to infrastructure and service delivery systems, requiring new approaches to manage risks such as cyber security. 

The session will be opened by IWA Executive Director, Kala Vairavamoorthy followed by an overview of Digitalisation trends in water utilities by Helene Alegre (LNEC, Portugal), and the drawbacks of digitalisation: Potential threats by Harsha Ratnaweera (Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Norway). The interactive session, which incorporates digital tools into the discussion, will include perspectives from Olga Sanginova (National Technical University of Ukraine), Xiaodong Wang (Qingdao Univ of Technology), Johns Chandradasa (NWS&DB Sri Lanka) and George Bauer (GSMA).

AMR is a critical global health problem increasingly shown to be determined by sanitation. AMR in relation to decentralized systems however is a scarcely studied topic while a large part of the world population is served by these systems. 

One of the reasons for the scarcity of data on AMR in relation to decentralized sanitation is the variety of systems and the relative obscurity of their design dimensions and efficacy. 

This workshop is intended to draw attention to the spread of AMR through sanitation and to develop a research agenda for decentralized WASH and AMR. Speakers will present the state of the art of AMR data in relation to sanitation from the Global Sewage Project and WHO Tricyle project and will discuss the relation with water supply systems. Researchers, policymakers and practicioners are invited to join this co-creative session.

A new sanitation revolution is required which can deal with our current challenges in providing equitable and dignified sanitation. There is need to develop a sanitation infrastructure that is effective and demonstrates less dependence on water while promoting its re-use. 

This can be only be achieved through the introduction and the use of innovative and technological advances that brings about benefits at every step of the sanitation value chain. 

What is becoming clearer now is the fact that for us to achieve the radical transformation in the sanitation sector, we need a sanitation revolution and industrialisation. Nothing short of a revolution will achieve the universal global access target.

Chair: Adrian Sym, Alliance for Water Stewardship, United Kingdom

Cities need to create enabling conditions major urban water users to improve water use and work collaboratively to reduce regulatory burdens; water related risks and to increase financial incentives. 

Approaches such as the AWS Standard provides a credible, neutral platform to engage major water users in addressing complex challenges, in a way that is connected to the broader catchment. Cities can align water management systems within the city to frameworks such as the AWS Standard, thereby setting a leadership example of best practice. 

This workshop will draw on some initial thinking and work within diverse municipal contexts to help inform a strategy for accelerating uptake and deepening the impact of water stewardship in cities. This workshop will provide an ideal opportunity to inform and be informed by the IWA professional community into a topic area that has direct and specific relevance to water professionals.

With limited financial resources, municipalities and policy makers are increasingly incentivized to consider alternative viable options, including market based approaches that can lead to achieving sustainable wastewater and fecal sludge management which also include resource recovery and reuse. Successful implementation of such models however require well-formulated cross-sectoral partnerships, efficient low-maintenance technologies, supporting policy instruments and financing arrangements. Informed by case studies, this workshop will explore:

a) Innovative models for fecal sludge management

b) Appropriate technical options that meet demand, capacities and budget limitations

c) Enabling environment such as laws, regulations and effective institutions

d) Financing mechanisms that leverage both public and private capital

With its booming urban population, highly visible and impactful pollution, sanitation and water quality challenges as well as tremendously increasing water insecurity, Asia provides huge opportunities for creative approaches to urban sanitation – but to fully exploit these opportunities will require new policy and regulatory thinking. 

 In this session, we aim to identify priorities for a policy paper that addresses the key barriers to uptake of novel wastewater systems. 

 We will do so through the lens of the international, multi-partner INNOQUA project, which is researching decentralized wastewater treatment processes that utilize earthworms, zooplankton and microalgae. Project team members (including Costel Bumbac, Tatjana Schellenberg, Evelyn Herrera Lopera and Jean-Baptiste Dussaussois) will facilitate and take part in a round-table workshop – the outputs from which will be developed in a policy paper for local stakeholders.

Collaborators from the regional regulator and utility associations, donors, and technical specialists will facilitate issue-specific round-table discussions. Citywide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS) is an approach to sanitation planning and service delivery focused on reaching everyone in an urban area with services that are safe, equitable, and sustainable.

 Urban sanitation service systems are needed for customers irrespective of their infrastructure—sewered or non-sewered. Systems require a clear mandate, accountability, and resource management. Utility, regulatory, and municipal staff from Africa and Asia will share experiences formalizing service delivery systems that encompass non-sewered and low-income customers. 

Cases will be framed by an overview of CWIS initiatives of development banks, development partners, governments and professional associations. Groups will interrogate the approach in practice against SDGs 6,11.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended Water Safety Plans (WSPs), a holistic risk assessment and risk management approach, for drinking-water suppliers across low-, middle- and high-income countries, since publishing its 2004 Guidelines for Drinking-Water Quality. 

While rapid WSP adoption has occurred, capacity is still catching up to implementation needs. 

Many countries and regions lack case examples, legal requirements, and training resources for WSPs, corresponding to widespread capacity shortfall in the water supply sector. We propose a WSP training taxonomy and discuss it in relation to the stages of learning (introduction, practice, and reinforcement); describe the importance of customizing training to the target group, local language and circumstances; highlight the relevance of auditing for evaluating change over time; and call for robust methods to monitor WSP capacity development.

Water and sanitation service providers are uniquely placed to contribute to, and benefit from, the promotion of gender equality. As we work to achieve sustainable services for all in a rapidly changing world, it is timely to also consider how our workforce is structured and how to maximize its productivity and efficiency. 

This workshop will highlight the benefits that a diverse workforce can bring to the water sector. It will discuss common barriers to inclusion, as well as promising approaches that service providers can tap into. The interactive format will allow peer-to-peer learning among participants, who will share examples of promising initiatives from across the world. The workshop will showcase results from recent research that explores the barriers and opportunities for gender diversity in the water sector, including in water and sanitation utilities and in WASH enterprises.

The community of water professionals has an active innovation landscape which is addressing challenges but also creating new opportunities for managing water wisely, sustainably and equitably. Furthermore in order to meet SDG 6 we need new business processes (such as innovative

finance) to be meshed with new technology and digitalization. The Innovators Platform aims to create bridges across different groups, to accelerate and enable rapid dispersion of new ideas and approaches in the water sector. This is through:

• Providing a channel for the IWA network to showcase innovative solutions to water challenges ;

• Providing a platform which curates and intermeshes innovators from supply to demand (across water systems) to share and catalyse new ideas and approaches for improved water management;

• Being a source of information and reference on innovation for sustainable water solutions in the face of global change pressures.

The Platform aspires to enable change agents to catalyse innovation among various stakeholder groups across the IWA network including:

• Water utilities;

• Regulators;

• Manufacturers/Technology providers;

• Consultants;

• Investors;

• Academics; and

• Institutes/Networks.

One of the objectives of the Platform is to facilitate a series of events that bring together innovators from supply to demand across the water sector that will push forward the spread and uptake of new and alternative solutions to challenges across the waters sector. The WDCE is a key milestone that will enable focus on issues pertinent to emerging economies that can be benefit from accelerated innovation to improve water and sanitation access and quality.

Lack of adequate sanitation and discharge of untreated wastewater are major causes of waterborne diseases and negative impacts to ecosystems. Cities have to do major investments in urban sanitation and wastewater treatment to improve the current situation and to adapt to the population growth and urbanization.

Future projections show by 2050 circa three billion people are without adequate sanitation and that at the same time the emissions from cities to surface waters double. Negative impacts to human health and ecosystems will continue or become worse. WHO and other guidance reduce the impact of unsanitary conditions.

Focus of this workshop is to define global trends on sanitation and effects to ecosystems and health, specific on waterborne diseases and consequences for antimicrobial resistance. This will be discussed on (sub-)continental scale.

Non-Revenue Water is a key component of the efficient operation of a water utility. Those water utilities with low NRW are often identified as being the most efficient. In addition, having low NRW often results in higher revenues and thus more monies to spend on future NRW management activities. This is often referred to as the Virtuous Cycle of NRW management and it is important for poorly managed water utilities to get on the cycle of improvement as soon as possible. 

The objectives of the workshop are to give the participants a general overview of what constitutes NRW, its value to the water utility and how to start managing these losses. The discussions will help the participants to identify which elements of NRW are more important and which to start managing first and which last. The workshop is aimed at Water Supply Engineers and Managers who are responsible for managing water supply networks and specifically managing leakage levels and burst repairs.

The session, entitled Empowering Gender Equity in Sanitation, seeks to bring forth the importance of inclusive and equitable urban planning and service delivery. 

 Many sectors including urban planning, water and sanitation have largely been ignorant to the needs and participation of 50% of the population( i.e. women). The session will bring forth the unique perspectives of women sanitation champions from three different countries and highlight that women’s perspectives have largely been ignored in urban water and sanitation design, decision making and planning. 

Without their active participation, we will never be able to ensure equitable and universal access to water and sanitation. It is imperative that we all work on this agenda of inclusive water and sanitation and give women their rightful place in both decision making and in access to infrastructure and services.

Of the 2 billion people without access to basic sanitation globally, 760 million of these live in Sub-Saharan Africa. From 2000 to 2017, the continent registered an improvement of the population with access to basic sanitation from 8% to 12 %, while those with access to safely managed sanitation improved from 15% to 18 %. These improvements are no doubt too slow to keep pace with the population growth on the continent. To remedy this situation, the Africa Leaders Forum will hold two sessions on the sanitation situation in Africa. The aim will be to explore a radical and essentially disruptive shift in approaches used to achieve universal access to adequate and equitable sanitation in Sub-Saharan Africa that need to be adopted. The first session will provide insights on some approaches in use in South Africa and Uganda to achieve this goal. This will then be followed by a panel discussion on what radical approaches needed to ensure no one is left behind in Sub-Saharan Africa. Led by the African Water Association, the second session will dwell on the enabling environment necessary for these solutions to work.

In most low-income countries, a small portion of households are sewered or have safely-managed sanitation. Current urban sanitation investment patterns will not advance SDG 6 or 11. 

Financing must be used more efficiently, sustainably, and inclusively. Citywide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS) is an approach to sanitation planning and service delivery focused on reaching everyone in a city with safe, equitable, and sustainable services, irrespective of hardware. 

The CWIS SAP Tool helps utilities, cities and regulators assess outcomes of different city-level investment options on dimensions of equity, viability, and public health. Utilities and regulators from Kenya and Zambia will share their assessments and plans to integrate the tool into planning and reporting processes. The session will cover a tool walk-through, and plans for additional regulators’ implementation.

With limited financial resources, municipalities and policy makers are increasingly incentivized to consider alternative viable options, including market based approaches that can lead to achieving sustainable wastewater and fecal sludge management which also include resource recovery and reuse. 

Successful implementation of such models however require well-formulated cross-sectoral partnerships, efficient low-maintenance technologies, supporting policy instruments and financing arrangements. Informed by case studies, this workshop will explore: 

a) Innovative models for fecal sludge management 

b) Appropriate technical options that meet demand, capacities and budget limitations

c) Enabling environment such as laws, regulations and effective institutions 

d) Financing mechanisms that leverage both public and private capital

Technology innovation is an important aspect of the effort in addressing the challenges in development. 

Many solutions are bespoke, novel products. Testing is a crucial yet often under-explored aspect of product development. It is rarely understood in its entirety, let alone considered during the initial planning phase. This session presents a tool that helps technology developers communicate, understand, and plan their testing efforts. 

In a practical exercise, the use of the tool is demonstrated. The workshop also intends to draw from the participants’ experience to further improve the tool.

Without occupational health and safety, safely managed sanitation services cannot be achieved, and public health remains at risk. 

Yet, sanitation workers, involved in pit emptying, treatment plant operation, sewer maintenance, suffer deplorable working conditions and health problems in many countries. This workshop, organised by ILO, WHO, World Bank, WaterAid, BMGF and SNV, aims to elevate the issue, deepen the understanding of the working conditions of sanitation workers and learn from experiences across organizations and countries. 

It presents recent research and offers a platform to sanitation workers to share their views and experiences. A panel -including Mr Mahbub Hossein from Ministry of Local Government in Bangladesh, Chamila Weerathunghe from ILO in Sri Lanka and Magsaysay awardee Mr Bezwada Wilson from India- will discuss with the audience how to improve the situation of sanitation workers. Participants will reflect on the implications for their own work and institutions.

The future of safe and secure water supply very much depends on the next generation’s decision-makers, engineers and innovators. 

Therefore, it is a valuable investment to ensure the highest possible quality of graduate education in water-related subjects at universities in regions across the world. However, substantial differences in the quality of education remain in our field. 

These differences limit the mobility of future graduates and world citizens, e.g. in the context of inter-university credit transfers. As a result, there is an abundance of good practices we need to identify, share and further develop. Hence, the Water Harmony workshop is for everyone invested in country- or region-wide water management futures.

As the world asks more questions on how to solve the sanitation crisis, decentralised sanitation technologies are a promising and already successful answer. 

Different regulations and standards exist for water and wastewater treatment, but there was no standard for these unique technologies. International stakeholders came together to address this and created ISO30500 for non-sewered sanitation systems. 

The goal of developing the standard and the innovative technology in parallel was to 1) ensure human and environmental safety, 2) set benchmarks to encourage new innovators and 3) accelerate implementation and acceptance. Learn the contents of ISO30500, what a system’s path to certification looks like and how the standard drives the technologies’ success and closes the sanitation gap. Mei Yee Chan, Clément Cid and Jennifer Comer will speak from their expertise and open the floor for discussion on ISO30500 and ISO 24521

The World Water Development Report 2018 noted that though a tremendous opportunity to invest in nature based solutions (NBS) for sustainable water security outcomes exists, it requires moving beyond conventional approaches to water infrastructure planning and investment. NBS can be cost effective and enhance community safety and quality of life. Examples include restoration of watersheds, management of storm water runoff and reducing erosion from arable land. 

Through numerous co-benefits these measures also offer the possibility to rethink the purpose of our landscapes and to promote human well-being and livelihoods. The workshop will include a set of presentations offering insight and lessons learned on the deployment of NBS from pilot and practice and describing applied tools and approaches that address scaling NBSs via policy and financing strategies. Round table discussions will explore the drivers and barriers to investment and uptake of NBS.

Urban water utilities (PDAMs) in Indonesia and the Philippines are mandated by the government to achieve 100% coverage in their operational areas. 

 However, insufficient funding from the government and low ability to attract additional resources results in PDAMs having to prioritize, which inevitably results in poorer neighborhoods being left out. The current financing structure and mindset of PDAMs constrains their ability to develop new methods to serve low-income communities. 

This workshop will provide strategies on capacity-building efforts that include financial innovation and private participation to improve performance - strategies that utility managers and those that support them can adapt to accelerate their own transformation. Linkages with sanitation will also be drawn.

AquaRating focuses the challenges faced by water and sanitation services providers in a comprehensive way, evaluating their performance and maturity through indicators and management practices, establishing an international standard, and relying on validated information. 

Each utility assessment is unique, with its very particular challenges given by the local context, size of the utility, organizational structure, etc. In addition, each utility also collects an interesting portfolio of solutions that should be shared with other utilities, from the self-assessment phase to the design and implementation of action plans. 

With experiences from multiple countries, the attendees will learn how was possible to change the management in these utilities, and will be given opportunity to share their stories. During the roundtable discussions, the audience will have opportunity to reflect on the current needs for better utilities change management and how to improve the method.
