Market Study on demand for use of wastewater, excreta and faecal sludge and other related by- products

The study was aimed at determining the available market and the extent of re-use of wastewater sludge and other related by products in and around urban centers in Uganda. Specific objectives of the assignment were to:

 (i)     generate knowledge on the market demand for wastewater sludge and its related by-products in Uganda; investigate potential market for wastewater sludge, and related by products for agriculture use; document and analyse the legal framework for wastewater sludge use and disposal in Uganda; develop a databank of potential market for wastewater sludge; private operators and farmers in an effort to link buyers to sellers.

(ii)    determine the knowledge, attitudes and views of using wastewater sludge as fertilizer for crop production; and, document existing best practices and/or successes around wastewater sludge management, marketing and use among private operators and farmers. ore
