This report provides more detailed information and guidance on how to design and deliver a community-based, participatory process for project implementation.

“Water pollution by plastics and microplastics: A review of technical solutions from source to sea,” composed of a toolkit and catalogue, has been jointly developed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Water Management Institute (IWMI).

When it comes to the environment, the United Nations and its affiliates are walking the talk, according to a new report. In 2019, the nearly 60 bodies that comprise the United Nations System offset 97 per cent of the greenhouse gases they generated, according to the Greening the Blue report 2020.

The second edition of Sanitation, Wastewater Management and Sustainability: From Waste Disposal to Resource Recovery aims to bring about change by showing how improved sanitation and wastewater management can benefit both humans and the environment. Wastewater and excreta are commonly seen as useless and potentially dangerous waste products.

The Sanitation and Wastewater Atlas of Africa is the flagship product of a four-year project implemented jointly by the United Nations Environment Programme, GRID-Arendal, and the African Development Bank to describe the current situation of wastewater management and sanitation across the African continent.

In this catalogue there are brief descriptions of technologies that can be implemented to address the contamination of water bodies by plastics and microplastics. For each technology the information provided includes a description and examples of applications, opportunities, barriers and typical costs of implementation.

Jointly developed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), the research paper Faecal sludge management in Africa: Socio-economic aspects, human and environmental health implications explores current trends of faecal sludge management and how poor management practices worsen human

Improvements in water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and wastewater management in all sectors are critical elements of preventing infections and reducing the spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) as identified in the Global Action Plan to combat AMR.

Action taken report in reference to the National Green Tribunal (NGT) order August 14, 2020 in Original Application No. 162/2020 (Vibhor Mittal Vs M/s Unnati Construction Pvt. Ltd.)

Vibhor Mittal had filed a complaint in UPPCB regarding water pollution by M/s Unnati Construction Pvt. Ltd., Central Park, Ram Sudha Apartment, Swarn Jayanti Nagar, Aligarh. The apartment complex was inspected and samples collected from the outlet of the septic tank and analysed in the lab of UPPCB, Aligarh. The analysed values were not found as per applicable norms.

This Issue Brief aims to: (i) facilitate discussion on the need to properly address the existing issue of poor wastewater management in many Asian countries, in order to minimise the human health risks associated with SARS-COV-2 infections; (ii) identify possible routes of SARS-CoV-2 infections and contamination across water and wastewater servi
