An Introduction to Global Health - Sanitation - Why are we so far Behind in Achieving the Millennium Development Goals ? (13:45)
Rating

This lesson focuses on the impact of limited sanitation coverage and the experiences gained from past sanitation programs. Some of the challenges of expanded sanitation relate to barriers at the community level but equally important at the institutional and policy levels.

Sustainable Tourism – promoting environmental public health - Saltwater intrusion and the impact upon freshwater supplies (09:10)

Sustainable Tourism – promoting environmental public health Tourism - a major generator of solid waste (05:50)
Rating

In this presentation we focus’ on how tourism is a major generator of solid waste in Zanzibar. Tourist from OECD countries bring with them the lifestyle that replicate the waste generation from their native country, not only the volume of waste follows the tourist but also the composition. In Zanzibar, the composition is 80 percent organic material, but in OECD countries, the composition is only 25 to 30 percent organic material. This leaves Zanzibar’s traditional organic based waste handling system unable to handle the tourism waste.
