|EcoSanRes II activities in Bolivia
Agua Tuya in Cochabamba, Bolivia, has for
a long time worked successfully in setting up water supply schemes for peri-urban communities outside and bordering to the municipal water and wastewater jurisdiction in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Agua Tuya is now piloting sanitation, trying out dry urine diversion with separate greywater treatment and reuse of human excreta, as a complement to their water supply
schemes. EcoSanRes II is co-financing this initiative, together with SNV.
