The Global Environment Facility funded Caribbean Regional Fund for Wastewater Management (GEF CReW) Project and the United Nations Environment Caribbean Environment Programme are having a Photo Competition under the theme Wastewater as a Resource.
The GEF CReW "One Water" Photo Competition is a part of the efforts of the project to increase knowledge and influence positive attitudes towards and perceptions of wastewater using visual representation of the opportunities for treated or partially treated wastewater reuse. The competition aims to demonstrate the importance of good wastewater management practices as crucial in reducing the pollutants that enter our waters. It also seeks to promote more planned use of treated wastewater by demonstrating real examples of how wastewater is being or can be used reused as a resource. The scope of the competition is unlimited and may provide examples that can be considered for replication across the Wider Caribbean Region, where feasible. “One water” is selected as the name of the competition as it adequately denotes that all wastewater returns to the earth to become the water we once again use in everyday life and is therefore just as valuable.
Deadline: JUNE 5, 2017. Winners to be announced on World Ocean's Day- June 8, 2017
