Sanitation Crisis in Unsewered Slum Areas

Photo and Video Gallery

A documentary about the relation between eutrophication and water and sanitation issues in slums in Uganda was directed and produced by IHE Delft PhD fellows Philip Nyenje, Alex Katukiza and a local Ugandan journalist from the Uganda Broadcasting Corporation. The film was developed to raise awareness of these issues amongst a wider English speaking audience in Uganda and other countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. Interviews with the PhD researchers, slum dwellers and local leaders as well as clips from the stakeholder workshop are included. Parts of the documentary have been aired on national TV. The film was developed in the period February - August 2012 as part of the community outreach activities within the SCUSA Research Project and was funded by the IHE Delft Partnership Research Fund (UPaRF).
