For warming up at the first day we started with an excursion in Arba Minch to various interesting sites like the ROSA office, different types of pilot toilets, composting and urine applications in agriculture. The main topics of the meeting were the city presentations on the SSWP (strategic sanitation and waste plan) and the discussion of its implementation as well as the efforts on research.  On the last day we visited the Arba Minch springs of the municipal water supply. 

The project meeting was followed by workshops with stakeholders at the Arba Minch University on settlement structures and operation and maintainance.
