Safe use of wastewater for agriculture

The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) has been working with UN-Water Decade Program (UNW-DCP) on a project which researches and demonstrates the safe use of wastewater in agriculture. The main aim of the projet was to build the capacities of member states to maximize the benefits of wastewater use while employing safe practices.

UNW-DCP has produced a video which shows three urban farmers producing food in megacities around the world who use wastewater in their irrigation practices.The film also depicts some of the interviews that were conducted with participants and organizers of the project.
