Up to now, we have primarily focused on the water cycle. But what about the nutrient cycle that is so closely linked to the water cycle? In order to add this information to your analysis, try to answer the following questions and add the findings to your drawing:
Where to get further information: Farmers’ associations or agricultural research institutes (agricultural university etc.) may help you to answer this question. In regard to solid waste management, the city’s administration should be able to help you.
Interlinkages: How does the use of fertiliser influence other areas of the water and nutrient cycle? Overuse (of both organic and artificial fertilisers) may lead to water pollution through runoff. A high consumption of artificial fertiliser may for instance decrease the demand for organic fertiliser - which other interlinkages can you identify for your area?
Too many WASH and WRM projects fail prematurely or are left unused because they are poorly planned, don’t adequately meet user needs, or are weakened by corruption and integrity issues.
IQC management is a participatory, step-by-step process to help improve Integrity, manage Quality, and ensure Compliance of small-scale WASH and WRM projects.
