SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL presents OCTOPUS
The first collaborative online platform on emergency faecal sludge disposal and treatment
Faecal sludge disposal and treatment is a significant problem in rapid onset emergencies. As existing resources do not always allow for appropriate decision-making, the consideration of faecal sludge treatment is too often overlooked in emergency humanitarian responses.
Share, Develop, Decide
To address this lack of information, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL is launching the first collaborative platform called OCTOPUS. Intended for sanitation practitioners, OCTOPUS aims to provide them with a space for knowledge sharing, and to guide them in the development of their projects and decision-making.
Compare, Improve, Learn
The main objective of the OCTOPUS collaborative platform is to improve practices! OCTOPUS ensures the link between theory and practice, and helps sanitation stakeholders adapt their interventions to the different specific contexts of the crises they operate in. Each practitioner has the opportunity to document his or her experiences, to discover those implemented by other partners, and to compare the solutions and technologies used. OCTOPUS is also a link to other sanitation resources and initiatives (SuSanA, eCompendium…).
“OCTOPUS is the first and only collaborative tool in the field of faecal sludge disposal and treatment in emergencies that makes it possible to compare technologies and solutions in different crisis contexts on the basis of objective indicators. This specificity makes it a unique innovation.”
Marine Bussac, OCTOPUS project coordinator.
