Senator Bob Carr
Thank you for joining the global Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) Partnership.
Australia does not have a great record for dealing with our own poo & wee. Most of it ends up directly or indirectly in our rivers & oceans.
I trust Australians can help build supply chains for the 2.6b people around the world (1b in our region) who lack a sustainable, designated place to poo.
By participating in the SWA, perhaps Australian can learn about nutrient recovery and reuse & emerging technologies like urine separating toilets.
