Why is it important?

The study has shown the possibility of application of the constructed wetland technology for the treatment of faecal sludge in the Sahelian context of sub-Saharan Africa


We are excited with the outcome and hope this study informs stakeholders for the consideration of the wetland technology as a potential technical solution for the difficult faecal sludge management situation in most developing countries.
