Le problème d’assainissement  est un sujet d’actualité partout dans le monde et particulièrement dans les pays en développement.  L’eau insalubre, le manque d’assainissement et d’hygiène sont les principales causes de la diarrhée qui tue chaque année au moins 1,2 million d’enfants de moins de cinq ans ; soit environs 5.000 enfants chaque jour. Des milliers de filles ne vont pas à l’école fautes de toilettes privées, perpétuant ainsi le cycle de la pauvreté.

La nappe astienne, nappe profonde littorale située à l’ouest du département de l’Hérault,  est d’intérêt stratégique pour de nombreux usages sur ce territoire (eau potable de communes, campings sur le littoral, agriculteurs, particuliers…).  Les sollicitations croissantes et non coordonnées, allant jusqu’à sa surexploitation dans les années 80, l’ont rendue particulièrement vulnérable, tant au plan quantitatif que qualitatif.

Les collectivités publiques(communes, communautés d’agglomération, conseil général) et chambres consulaires locales ont alors constitué un syndicat mixte, le SMETA, pour l’étude, la gestion et les travaux nécessaires à la protection de cette nappe

MASS MEDIA AS A TOOL OF SOLVING WASH CHALLENGES OF THE URBAN AND RURAL POOR

The crisis of lack of access to Water and Sanitation services, affects the poor most. Poor people residing in rural areas and especially in urban slums do not have access and public and private servie providers do not have plans to deliver services to poor areas.

Policy makers are seldom aware of the challenges being faced by the poor in accessing services, mainly because the voices of the poor are rarely heard in debates on problems and solutions on water issues.

To address this problem, WASH Journalists in the West Africa region where about 300million people lack access to WASH services, formed a regional network with the strategic objective of amplifying the voices of poor people on WASH issues and increase visibility of lack of access of the region’s poor to water and sanitation services, and generate discussions on practical, low cost, and people centred programmes to resolve this challenge.

Case study on the Dutch project of the River Basin Management Platform Rhine-West

Due to the geographical position below sea level as well as downstream, Dutch water systems are exposed to a permanent load of contaminants such as heavy metals, chlorated organics and nutrients.Dutch watermanagers are facing major challenges to meet the (international) targets to obtain clean, safe and healthy waters. Certainly for the open North Sea system it is important to tackle the problems at source since, once the contaminants become widely spread (e.g. via suspended matter) in the openNorth Sea and subsequently in the food chain, it is no longer possible to control (clean up) the pollution, while negative ecological effects are obvious. Key solutions are effective communication, joint approaches and efforts between all stakeholders involved, which are: Dutch watermanagement authorities (Rijkswaterstaat, Provinces, Water Boards and Municipalities), neighbouring countries, freshwater- and marine watermanagement and Marine Conventions (such as OSPAR and HELCOM), International River Commissions (such as Rhine) and the EU Directives WFD and Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD).
