Productive use of wastewater

RUAF partners undertook research and pilot projects related to productive reuse of wastewater in Accra, Beijing and Lima in the context of the SWITCH project on sustainable and integrated city water management. 
A summary of the main results of these studies can be found in the article by René van Veenhuizen and Olofunke Cofie (2011) in Urban Agriculture Magazine titled "Sustainable use of water in urban agriculture". Articles on two of the city studies were included in the final report on the SWITCH project (see page 39 onwards for the Lima study and page 225 onwards for the Beijing study). For more details on the SWITCH project and access to a series of articles on the the various studies and pilot projects see the SWITCH project
