Community Based Sanitation in Urban and Rural Areas (Summer Course)

Oct. 12, 2013: Currently, around 40% of Indonesian population still practice open defecation. This poor condition is far away from Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) target which is to provide proper access to sanitation for 60 % Indonesian by 2015.

East Java as one of 33 provinces in Indonesia is the most populated province of more than 39 million people by 2013. As sanitation demand and enabling environment are getting better in the last 10 years in this province, there are many sanitation best practices worth studying.

The Department of Enviromental Engineering with the Research Centre of Community Empowerment of ITS has been working for more than 8 years to encourage local communities to have their own sanitation facilities. In this summer program lesson learnt from many projects involving international donors, universities partners, local government as well as different appropraite technologies will be presented and explored. 

This summer course will be held on 17-24 August  2014.
