Action Research BRAC WASH
As part of the BRAC WASH II programme, € 1.5 million is funded by DGIS to be used for innovative research, tendered to consortia of leading European, Bangladeshi and international research organisations. This page provides background information and updates from the action research projects.
Action research in the BRAC WASH II programme focuses on six issues: sanitation in areas with high groundwater tables, secondary sludge treatment, low-cost water supply technologies, saline intrusion, monitoring and pit latrine sludge processing.
The BRAC WASH II research call for low-cost sanitation technologies for areas with high groundwater tables was won by WASTE Advisers on urban environment and development, based in The Netherlands. Their project is called SANTE which stands for Sanitation Technology for Enterprises.
The BRAC WASH II research call for secondary treatment options for faecal sludge was won by the School of Civil Engineering, University of Leeds, based in the United Kingdom. Their project is called Value at the end of the Sanitation Value-chain (VeSV).
The BRAC WASH II research call for mitigation of saline intrusion is won by Deltares, based in the Netherlands. Their project is called SWIBANGLA, managing saltwater intrusion impacts in Bangladesh.
