Sanitary facilities via Web 2.0
In working to meet the Millennium Development Goals concerning water and sanitation, most people first think of the heavy work, such as digging wells and constructing sewage systems. However, there may be a much more groundbreaking role for state-of-the-art Internet technology. To this end, the expertise of Dutch water and sanitation specialists combined with the talents of Internet experts from India, the US and Sweden. Together they have built a website called Akvo (’water’ in Esperanto), which should serve as a major impetus to addressing the global issue of sanitation.
