Being a technically driven expert organization, BORDA is seeking an active role in sanitation and environment-related research. Our aim is to improve the understanding of scientific processes & engineered solutions in the context of BORDAs portfolio via our work on the ground. Moreover, we want to advance sanitation related knowledge by doing scientifically sound research. Lastly, we would like to bridge the gap between academia, institutions and practitioners alike by disseminating our knowledge and experience from the field into the WASH sector.
Most current R&D efforts focus on technical, engineering and biological processes. These aim at the maturation of DEWATS technology/decentralized sanitation solutions for becoming (a) well-established technological alternatives during the global wastewater crisis.
Furthermore, our R&D team is supporting all regional programs by guiding regional research and lab-related efforts, enhancing scientific exchange to build up regional capacities, supporting quality control systems for our regional hubs and by contributing to scientific publications.
