Dear Members, 
We are pleased to share our August progress highlights:
  • The Steering Committee has completed interviews for the 2022 Cohort, and the finalists will be announced on World Toilet Day.
  • 2021 Cohort members Akyas Sanitation and Aerosan are finalists in the Sarphati Sanitation Challenge
  • Star Rated Public Toilet Guidelines monthly self-assessments were conducted in 
    seven cities throughout India by Eram Scientific, and at four locations in Dhaka, Bangladesh by Bhumijo.
  • New Publication: “Future Proofing Agriculture Systems: Circular sanitation economies for more resilient and sustainable food systems” co-authored with UN FAO was released earlier this week.
  • We had great attendance and discussion in our World Water Week session with the GSMA – "Using data to build resilient urban sanitation and waste management" watch the replay here and hear from Athena Infonomics, Sanergy, Gather, Lusaka Water, Fluid Robotics and Pit Vidura. 
  • And a warm welcome to Abelo Phiri, who has joined the TBC team as Accelerator & Pipeline Manager in August, based in Zambia.
We are ramping up preparations for World Toilet Day: stay tuned for an invitation from Dir of Communications Christelle for an All Member Meeting later this month. The session will introduce what we have in the works and be an opportunity to integrate and align with your activities.
Lastly, if you’re not already following Venu Gupta on Linkedin we highly recommend you do. He’s dropping weekly wisdom and inspiration on the innovation and entrepreneurship of the sanitation economy and (we’re certainly biased but) we’re big fans.  

With kind regards,
The TBC Team

Interim CEO
