The aim of this project is to investigate the relationship between mosquito-vectored Zika, inadequate provision of secure and safe potable supplies, drainage and sanitation. Objectives:
We intend to disseminate our results via workshops at State and Government level, to pass on our knowledge of the need for a reliable, safe and secure potable water supply which would obviate the need for residents to store water in case of scarcity. We will also explain the multiple benefits of the SuDS approach, and how it can be designed into settlements using the Ceará and Rio de Janeiro case study sites. As well as general SuDS, the safe disposal of greywater will be explained, as will the utility of rainwater harvesting, both of which will deny the mosquito access to water to lay its eggs. Our comprehensive reports will give further details to engage the stakeholders and will be available at the workshops. We will maximise the potential of this project by producing a decision support tool (DST) to be trialled at State level which will indicate what infrastructure is needed and where it can be designed in to the existing buildings. Our ambitious aim in the future is to retrofit these infrastructures into our case study areas and monitor the effect this has on the mosquito population. In the two case study areas, Ceará and Rio de Janeiro, we will work with the respective regulatory agency and the National School of Public Health to host a website giving our results and recommendations. We will also invite government representatives to monitor over the long term what has been undertaken by public providers as a result of this project to invest in civil works to improve sanitation conditions.
This research aims to assess the impact of this policy change on farmers through environmental, technical and economic perspectives.
The aim of this two year KTP project is to investigate the value of water managed green infrastructure in urban areas to improve biodiversity.
The proposed project brings together scholars from Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience (CAWR) at Coventry University (CU) and Department of Animal Sciences (DoAS) at Stellenbosch University (SU) as part of a knowledge exchange around action based research approaches that can be applied in exploring local institutions and livelihoods of communal livestock farmers in South Africa.
This project aims to assess the social impact of small-scale agroecological businesses and food producing enterprises in the UK.
