The pioneer to overcome a sanity problem in the world - For achievement of SDGs by an environmental engineering -

The earth is called a “water planet”. However, we can use only 0.7% of all water volume as freshwater. In addition, approximately 30% of people in the whole population cannot access safe drinking water. Thus, in this feature article, the focus is to bring attention to the world’s water sanitation problem. Moreover, most recently, the 2030 agenda for sustainable development was adopted in 2015 (sustainable development goals : SDGs).
Firstly, we introduced the sanitation problem in the world and the system in Japan to cooperate with developing countries for sanitation improvement. Next, we introduced the down-hanging sponge (DHS) reactor and membrane separation bioreactor for adaptation of sewage treatment. Moreover, the supporting of sewage pipes in Vietnam, pathogenic microorganisms problem in Bolivia and education of hygiene to school students in Mozambique were also introduced in this section. Finally, a roundtable discussion was held on the attractiveness and difficulty of doing business in developing countries as a summary of this feature article. The information of a book on the sanitation problem and water treatment, as well as a website were introduced in this magazine. If you are interested in this feature article, please check the book and website.
