Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Progress in providing clean water and sanitation throughout the developing world has been steady and encouraging, even though UN Millennium Development Goals will not be completely met. A number of important lessons have been learned along the way with respect to point-of-use water treatment and sanitation devices that are appropriate for deployment in remote areas where power and clean water are not available. Here, prominent point-of-use treatment systems are compared in terms of disinfection capability, durability and cost, and lessons learned regarding the provision of improved sanitation are reviewed.
