Présentation
Wastewater reuse is an integral part of water demand management, particularly in rural areas suffering from water scarcity. The AFROMONITOX network will be a collaboration with scientists and practitioners designing affordable water treatment solutions for domestic water intended for irrigation use in a rural village in Egypt. The project aims to advance possibilities for assessment of the water treatment efficacy by designing sensitive yet cost-effective bioassays needed to secure water safety. The network will contribute to the tailored solutions for wastewater treatment and reuse by integrating ecotoxicological tests in the water quality monitoring. We will establish a collaboration with scientists engaged in the existing projects (Afrialliance Action Group and a Public-Private Partnership project) in the area of wastewater reuse and sanitation in rural areas of African countries. Our collective expertise in water quality assessment is highly complementary, and we foresee an efficient collaboration, both scientific and practical. The project will improve our understanding and tools in hazard assessment in various environmental settings. It will have high socioeconomic impact and permit long-term and economically-sustainable control of wastewater use for irrigation in rural communities. Also, it will contribute to the public awareness and on-site education as well as Stockholm University´s education in the ecotoxicological assessment of wastewater treatment.
