How smart technology can ensure a continuous water supply

Providing accessible, safe, sustainable water and sanitation services to everyone on the planet is one of the most critical development challenges we face. This podcast focuses on how smart technology is being used in Kenya and the work that Oxfam and Diaspora AI are doing in the informal settlements of Nairobi. It showcases how it can ensure a more consistent and continuous water supply, and provides evidence to help hold services providers to account. Irene Gai, Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) Strategist from Oxfam Kenya will describe how the project came about using smart sensors in tanks and how this can work in a range of settings to advance greater interaction between systems, technology and accountability even in the most challenging of contexts.

Sanitation in Focus: The WASH response in Cox's Bazar

As part of the response to the Rohingya refugee crisis in Bangladesh, Oxfam has been supporting the implementation of water and sanitation infrastructure in the refugee camps. The huge influx of people, challenging environmental factors and the small space have led to innovate approaches being taken to address the quantities of faecal sludge needing treatment. In this podcast Oxfam’s John Allen and Salahuddin Ahmmed discuss what approaches are being used and how current innovations have overcome the challenges faced there.
