KAMPALA: Last week, the National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) sought to enhance its technical capabilities through a promising collaboration with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). In a series of meetings, NWSC delegates engaged in fruitful discussions with counterparts from JICA, diving deep into the intricacies of a prospective capacity-building initiative.

Following the aforementioned meetings, representatives from the JICA Uganda country office, accompanied by a distinguished team from the JICA Headquarters in Japan, again convened with NWSC officials with the primary objective to gather essential insights for project formulation and to foster an exchange of opinions regarding the foundational framework of a potential Technical Cooperation Project between the two parties.

Conversations during the meeting centered on delineating the crucial steps bridging project formulation and implementation. Roles and responsibilities were delineated with meticulous care, laying a solid groundwork for future endeavors.

Markedly, among the NWSC contingent were the Deputy Managing Director Technical Services, Eng. Amayo Johnson, and Senior Director Business & Scientific Services, Dr. Rose Kaggwa, adding substantial expertise to the dialogue.

Looking ahead, NWSC eagerly anticipates further collaboration with the JICA team, as both entities strive to shape a plan for a mutually beneficial partnership and a successful venture.

In Uganda, the National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC), in collaboration with Water for People, has spearheaded innovative sludge management initiatives. By producing faecal sludge briquettes, NWSC showcases the economic and environmental viability of sludge utilization with the help of technological innovation and institutional support.

All in all, the prudent management and utilization of sludge are paramount to realizing its full potential and mitigating associated risks. At NWSC, stringent regulations and guidelines govern sludge management practices, ensuring compliance with international safety standards.
