An eye opener to inclusive sanitation planning. The course content was very well delivered not to mention the choice of case studies of failed and successful urban sanitation projects. Keep it up!!!

A global vision of whole sanitation sistems including stakeholders, so useful procedures and very interesting examples.

I recommend this course for everyone who want to know more about sanitation, if your technician better but isn't a must at all

I think it's a platform to know about standard sanitation system and planning process according to the condition of a locality. The case studies also helpful to relate the technologies or sanitation system with the real situation or world.

This course covers a wide range of sanitation systems in a concise but well-structured manner. All the lecturers are eloquent and use lots of case studies to expand on concepts, which makes it this excellent for beginners.

Very good general overview of how to approach deciding which sanitation system to use in many different contexts. It does not go into great detail regarding the design or operation of treatment systems. It is worth taking!
