The third JWF webinar was held on July 28th with no less than 110 participants from overseas and Japan, mainly from Southeast Asia like Philippines, Malaysia Thailand and other countries. Mr. Kazushi Hashimoto, Advisor to the Japan Sanitation Consortium, gave a presentation on “Japan’s experience in on-site wastewater management” and emphasized the importance of viewing wastewater treatment issues as a public issue rather than an individual problem. First, he showed the video on Johkasou system to deepen the listeners’ understanding of the Johkasou system. He also talked about the problems that developing countries are facing today, and said that Japan was facing the same problems in the 1960s. He then explained how Japan overcame and solved those problems, showing specific solutions. We received many questions from the listeners, and Mr. Hashimoto answered them as much as he could in the time available, which made the webinar very informative.
