An integrated look at sanitation systems and opportunities for creative solutions in water management

The Seychelles Integrated and Comprehensive Sanitation Master Plan (ICSMP) was designed to promote innovative and alternative approaches to sanitation for the three main islands of the Seychelles archipelago: Mahé, Praslin, and La Digue. 

The ICSMP optimizes connections with water supply by considering the impact of alternative water sources for specific uses—for example, we have investigated the use of reclaimed water in households or for industrial use and groundwater recharge. The plan also develops demand-side measures, conservation measures, and rainwater harvesting while considering a planned waste-to-energy initiative (involving the renewable energy potential of wastewater and sludge). 

Other areas of investigation include energy demand assessments, stormwater management review, flood-resilience work, land uses, climate change considerations, and rainwater harvesting measures. In terms of agriculture, we analyzed the impact of reclaimed water and recycled sludge on productivity and production costs. 

With this plan in place, there are two long-term impacts: the improvement of the Seychelles environment and the improvement of health and sanitary conditions for the island communities.
