Simulation and gaming for grey water treatment for stakeholders’ engagement in Ethiopian schools

2017

Titre : Simulation and gaming for grey water treatment for stakeholders’ engagement in Ethiopian schools

Pays : Ethiopie

Date/Durée : 01-Jui-2017 // 31-Jan-2018

Résumé
The overall objective of the project is development, testing and application of an innovative grey water treatment simulation model - in the form of a computer-assisted board game - for sustainable engagement of different stakeholders in school WASH. The project is reaching out to new generations of people, and a wide range of stakeholders, often neglected in previous initiatives. By tackling the serious topic of WASH at schools in a playful and interactive way – the project aims at both improving sanitation and at scaling up of the approach at other schools. The hypothesis is that the intervention made with introducing grey water treatment promotes water reuse to school children on the one hand, while savings are made in drinking water consumption at schools on the other hand. Treated grey water can be reused for cleaning of toilets, toilet flushing (for pour flush toilets), and for irrigation of gardens for which currently tap water is being used.

Contexte
Improving school WASH remains a challenge in many parts of the world. Contrary to the schools in European countries, schools in Sub-Saharan Africa often have to finance water and electricity bills from their own budget, as well as the maintenance of all facilities. School WASH is a topic of interest of local stakeholders in Adama – viz. Adama Town Health Office (ATHO), Adama Town Education Office (ATEO), schools’ management, teachers and students. However, after initial improvement of the school hardware (constructed toilets, installed drinking water taps), schools often fail to maintain the drinking water and sanitation systems.

Objectifs
It is foreseen to develop two computer-assisted role-playing games (board games) targeting different stakeholders and developed for different purposes : Simplified concept simulation– introduction of the grey water treatment and reuse idea for school students, WASH clubs, parents, Kebele officials. Simulation of the working principle and daily O&M of the grey water treatment system – for operator(s), school teachers, SME involved in the design and construction of infrastructure.
