dc.description French version available in IDRC Digital Library: Irrigation avec des eaux usées et la santé : évaluer et atténuer les risques dans les pays à faible revenu en
dc.description.abstract The book presents quantitative risk assessment for uses of wastewater, along with low-cost options for health risk reduction, wastewater treatment, and on-farm and off-farm measures, that align with multiple barrier guidelines for safe wastewater irrigation. The guidelines were published by the World Health Organization (2006). Chapters highlight experiences across the developing world with reference to various case studies from sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Mexico and the Middle East. The book also addresses options for resource recovery and wastewater governance, clearly establishing a connection between agriculture, health, and sanitation which is often the missing link in discussions about using wastewater as an asset. en
