With Sustainable Sanitation Practice (SSP) we try to make available high quality information on practical experiences with available sustainable sanitation systems. SSP should fill a gap that we have identified in the last few years in which sustainable sanitation has become an important issue that is discussed among many disciplines. For SSP a sanitation system is sustainable when it is not only economically viable, socially acceptable and technically and institutionally appropriate, but it should also protect the environment and the natural resources. SSP is therefore fully in line with SuSanA, the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (www.susana.org).
SSP is published quarterly, it is available for free online from this site. Thematic issues shall tackle selected fields of sustainable sanitation systems. The next issues:
- Issue 16: Behaviour change (July 2013) For this issue we are still looking for contributions!
- Issue 17: Miscellaneous (October 2013) This issue will comprise a collection of interesting articles on various topics submitted to SSP during the last year.
Further issues planned:
Financing of sanitation, Capacity building, Motivation for sanitation, Innovative solutions, Legal frameworks
The selection which of the topics will come first is based on the interest from contributors. We would like to invite all interested persons to contribute articles to SSP, be available as reviewers and/or suggest topics for future issues. If you are interested and want to contribute please contact the
SSP editorial office (email@example.com), for further details.
With best regards,
