General Description of the Research Project This project aims to establish a series of sustainable technologies related to water services contributing to health and wellbeing of local people in areas with serious water issues resulting from the extreme skewed distribution of population and development. To remove barriers for practical implementation, the reliability and adaptability of the technologies that combine diagnosis of water security, water treatment and evaluation of the system, previously obtained from a project in Nepal, will be increased, and incentives to adopt the technologies will be clarified by quantifying economical and environmental advantages. And, by identifying requirements for application to different regions, the basement that enables development of water management technology fitting with a variety of climate, culture and society will be eventually prepared.
In Nepal, suffering from water shortage and water pollution due to rapid population growth, health-related information will be added to the previous water security map, high-performance water treatment units will be installed in the selected model areas, and their effectiveness will be assessed. In Ghana, having serious and chronic water pollution and deteriorating health, digital map of water circulation and visualisation of pollution and health impact will be achieved to excavate the core issues. Further water treatment technologies fitting with the water issue in Ghana will be proposed.
