The public-private partnership approach assists with seed funding, technical and project management skills to initiate water and financial savings, with a sustainable funding and execution model to ensure continuity and long-term sustainability of the solution. The financial savings resulting from 15% savings in water demand  (12 million m3/annum of water) will be ring-fenced and re-invested in the water conservation project to ensure sustainable long-term savings are achieved.

Access to water and sanitation are one of the most pressing issues people are facing in rural Cambodia. Prior to this project, business for private desludgers was relatively minor, with no sludge treatment plants and correspondingly high prices. Facing this issue, the GRET began a small-scale sludge treatment plant project, as part of the larger PACEPAC sanitation programme in Cambodia. In the town of Daeum Mien, the project used an innovative small-footprint and low cost design for a sludge treatment plant that would fully process the sludge into useable compost.

The plant was constructed above-ground and in two separate floors, which is useful in very rocky areas that are difficult to excavate or in areas with a small available land footprint. This small-scale plant was designed to be completely demechanized, requiring no electricity nor water supply, as rainwater would be collected from the roof into a concrete cistern for use around the site. The components of the treatment plant are as follows: inlet bar screen, solid extraction settler, anaerobic baffled reactor, aerobic pond, sludge drying beds, and open-air, contained compost heaps. This plant will be able to treat 2m3 per day of domestic sludge.

  • providing technical and institutional solutions adapted to the needs;
  • contributing to a production of references for sanitation sector;
  • involving local authorities and communities.

The priorities of the project were on one hand to integrate collective and individual sanitation and on the other hand, to promote a low-cost technologies easily operated by implementing a simplified sewer system able to collect treat 100m3/day of wastewater. The objectives were to reduce groundwater pollution from the unsafe traditional sanitation practices and to reduce associated health risks and foul odors caused by this poor wastewater handling.

The management model developed by Hydroconseil and the DINEPA is based on a contractual relationship between a water community which represents the beneficiaries and a professional operator in charge of the maintenance and the operation of the system. It’s a local public-private partnership adapts to the Haitian rural context and permits the sustainability of the system. This project represents a progress in the country where the coverage of water supply is low. This management model experimented in this project represents now a reference for the other communities in the rural areas of the country.

Development and climate change are putting freshwater ecosystems, the most endangered of all ecosystems, under severe stress. The increased degradation, hydrological variability and changes in land use have serious consequences in the green infrastructure and associated water-related services that these ecosystems provide. Recent evidence showing shrinking clean water supplies and perceived water insecurity has made businesses and water utilities look at fresh water as they never have before – a valuable good that is produced, sold and consumed and deserves investment.
