Emerging Pollutants in Water and Wastewater
Strengthening Scientific Research and Policy (2015-2016)
This component promotes scientific research and to strengthen the knowledge base on emerging pollutants in water and wastewater to enhance scientific and technical capacities of developed and developing countries and support the development and implementation of effective policies and programmes.
The elaboration of a series of technical and policy case-studies on emerging pollutants in water and wastewater in different regions of the world (Africa, Asia, Latin America, Arab States and globally) to collect and document on the existing scientific information and policy analysis in relevant areas. Additionally, to strengthen, as a result, the knowledge base on emerging pollutants in water and wastewater by sharing and disseminating scientific information and policy approaches.
Technical & Policy Guidelines
Preparation and publishing of technical and policy guidelines, complemented by findings of case-studies, to assist science-based policy-making on addressing emerging pollutants and safe wastewater reuse.
