2 The Sustainable Sanitation Alliance is an open international alliance dedicated to understanding viable sanitation solutions. It links practitioners, academics, policy makers, communities etc. with the aim of promoting innovation and best practices in policy, programming and technology. It publishes a useful digest of current practice, users can request a copy at: Sustainable Sanitation Alliance

3 Sandec is the Department of Water and Sanitation in Developing Countries at the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag). Their work in five research fields takes place in close collaboration with international and local organisations. These collaborations contribute to increasing research capacity and professional expertise in partner countries. It publishes a useful newsletter of current practice online. SANDEC Water & Sanitation in Developing Countries

4 GIZ is a useful resource for two primary sources of information as follows:. It publishes a useful newsletter of current practice relating to climate change, subscription by contacting: It also contains a useful resource library which can be freely accessed on: tions.html GIZ

5 SSWM provides a number of useful sanitation and water management resources which can be accessed through: It also publishes a useful newsletter of current practice which can be subscribed to as follows: e Sustainable Sanitation & Water Management SSWM

6 A collection of the brilliant, innovative, appropriate and sometimes daft: Useful for prompting ideas and researching simple applications of technology. Check out the section on open source 3D printing – could this be the “appropriate technology of the future” APPROPEDIA

7 This is the original of the species – a collection of over 1050 books dealing with do it yourself technology. Some useful info buried inside. Some of the resources however, seem quite dated and most are now either available freely on the internet or replaced by youtube or vimeo. Still worth a search. technology/appropriate-technology-library Village Earth – Appropriate Technology Library

8 This is a very useful network which connects professionals in a range of disciplines working in the supply of safe affordable water. The website can be accessed on: There is also a very useful newsletter which can be obtained by contacting: Rural Water Supply Network

9 A useful introduction to global development containing a collection of multi-media resources development The section climate change provides a useful starting point for this topic: /climate-change Finally we recommend George Monbiot’s blog on climate change for some stimulating info which you may not totally agree with but will provoke some debate. /georgemonbiot+climate-change Guardian Global Development

11 Well resource centre for water and sanitation & environmental health, Loughborough University. The WELL website is a focal point for providing access to information about water, sanitation and environmental health and related issues in developing and transitional countries. WELL Resource Centre

12 GWP was founded in 1996 by the World Bank, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) to foster integrated water resource management (IWRM).World BankUnited Nations Development ProgrammeSwedish International Development Cooperation Agency The network is open to all organisations involved in water resources management. The website is useful for strategy rather than practical action based resources. Global Water Partnership

13 This is a useful website which gives an overview of both practical projects and wash strategy IRC International Water & Sanitation Centre

14 “Schumacher’s groundbreaking book ‘Small is Beautiful’ is as relevant today as it was in the 1970s. We are still living in a world where economic growth and technological advancements offers little for the two billion people living in abject poverty. And we still treat our planet as expendable – exploiting it beyond its natural capacity – with global warming being one such devastating result”. This website gives an excellent overview of how Schuamcher’s philosohpy has been implemented in todays post-climate changing world. practical-action Practical Action

15 The World Health Organisation publishes a series of guidelines and standards for water, sanitation and environmental health related topics. World Health Organisation

16 The Sphere Project – or ‘Sphere’ – was initiated in 1997 by a group of humanitarian non- governmental organisations (NGOs) and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. Their aim was to improve the quality of their actions during disaster response and to be held accountable for them. The minimum standards describe conditions that must be achieved in any humanitarian response in order for disaster-affected populations to survive and recover in stable conditions and with dignity.

17 Renewable Energy Innovation specialise in electrical and electronic systems for renewable energy projects, mainly solar, wind and micro- hydro. We focus on renewable energy based stand-alone power supply systems (off-grid systems). This includes power and energy monitoring, battery charge control and wiring systems. We have not worked with them ourselves but their website appears to have a number of free to download resources and they also offer pre- departure training courses for field based engineers. innovation.co.uk/web12/index.php/en/ Renewable Energy Innovation

18 The overall aim of the Energy book is to provide a cohesive, concise and practical guide to help field practitioners (such as Engineers Without Borders placement volunteers) maximise the positive impact of energy-related projects. The authors have made the book free to download and express the opinion that it should be used, added to and distributed to assist those working in the field. The resources and reference list is useful for those working in this area. https://thewindyboy.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/en ergy-book-final-for-press.pdf Energy For Engineers

20 The IPCC is a scientific body under the auspices of the United Nations (UN). It reviews and assesses the most recent scientific, technical and socio-economic information produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of climate change. It does not conduct any research nor does it monitor climate related data or parameters. Its most recent report is available at: Climate Change IPCC

21 The Hesperian Foundation began in the 1970s in Ajoya, Mexico. There, an expanding group of volunteers working with villagers created a simple manual to use medically accurate knowledge in a culturally appropriate way to address community health needs. They published this manual in 1973 as Donde No Hay Doctor. In 1977, to share it with the world, Hesperian published the English language version Where There Is No Doctor, now the most widely used health book in the world. Health

22 James Ephraim Lovelock, CH, CBE, FRS is an independent scientist, environmentalist and futurist who lives in Dorset, England. He is credited with the concept of Gaia, the living planet. Climate Change James Lovelock

23 William Ernest "Bill" McKibben is an American environmentalist, author, and journalist who has written extensively on the impact of global warming Climate Change Bill McKibben

24 In 2009, a group of 28 internationally renowned scientists identified and quantified a set of nine planetary boundaries within which humanity can continue to develop and thrive for generations to come. Crossing these boundaries could generate abrupt or irreversible environmental changes. Respecting the boundaries reduces the risks to human society of crossing these thresholds earch/.html Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rgqtrli xYR4 Climate Change Planetary Boundaries
