Module 1: Introduction

The Arctic is undergoing dramatic changes in its climate that will make the region increasingly accessible for economic development, including resource extraction, tourism, or new transportation corridors through the region. Existing infrastructure in the Arctic region will be challenged to deal with increasing water use and waste generated from these developments, in addition to the treatment of municipal drinking and wastewater (sewage) from its growing communities. It is urgent that strategies are developed to meet relevant environmental effluent regulations and safeguard/restore and improve the health of Arctic communities and the environment.

This section of the toolbox evolves around the introduction to Arctic WASH, including the relevance of the topic, key challenges and solutions related to ongoing developments.
