Wastewater pollution is a growing threat to people and coral reefs. Although not new, the lack of attention on wastewater management and monitoring persists globally. This Wastewater Pollution Toolkit provides information about how wastewater pollution threatens ocean and human health, how it is managed, and how management can be improved to protect coastal environments. The strategies and solutions presented are intended to support reef managers in collaborating with stakeholders and engaging with decision makers to mitigate wastewater pollution in the ocean.
In addition to these web pages, explore case studies highlighting relevant management strategies, journal article summaries of the latest science, a self-paced online course, and the Ocean Sewage Series – online activities and events to discuss and demystify the massive issue of wastewater pollution and the innovative approaches addressing it.
Also, check out the resource library from our partner, the Ocean Sewage Alliance, a collective of organizations and scientists committed to reducing the threat of sewage and other wastewater pollution in our oceans. This library contains briefs, databases, publications, tools, videos, and more.
If you have ideas for new content to feature in any of our resource formats (e.g., case studies, journal articles, webinars, online course, or this toolkit), please share them with firstname.lastname@example.org.
