PUERTO RICO: Mosquitoes from sceptic tanks transmit dengue
 
The implementation of a dengue control programme in Puerto Rico led to the
discovery of previously unknown mosquito breeding sites underground.
Research published in the March 2008 issue of Medical and Veterinary
Entomology [1] showed that large number of mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti),
which transmit dengue fever to humans, were found to breed in septic tanks.
Geographical Information Systems identified significant clustering of adult
mosquitoes, which led to the discovery of underground aquatic habitats
(septic tanks) that were producing large numbers of Aedes aegypti and Culex
quinquefasciatus (Say) in the treated town.
 
Septic tanks are widespread in suburban and rural Puerto Rico, where,
apparently, they can contribute significantly to the maintenance of
island-wide dengue virus endemicity.

FUNDING
 
BILATERAL AID: update on new water funding from Japan, Australia and Spain
 
Japan is setting up a new technical assistance corps of groundwater and
water supply system specialists to be known as “W-SAT,” or the
“Water Security Action Team”, which will be dispatched to work in
Africa. This is one of the new initiatives mentioned by Japan’s Prime
Minister Yasuo Fukuda in the opening session of the Fourth Tokyo
International Conference on African Development (TICAD IV) in Yokohama.
Fukuda announced that Japan would double aid to Africa, currently US$ 1.7
billion (EUR 1.1 million), by 2012. Japan will also provide ODA loans of up
to US$ 4 billion (EUR 2.6 billion) to improve African infrastructure.
 
Peru will obtain US$ 80 million (EUR 51.8 million) in funding from the
water and sanitation cooperation fund, created by the Spanish government.
The fund, announced by Spain in November 2007, was launched on 16 May 2008
in Lima, during the Latin America and Caribbean-European Union heads of
state summit. Peru will be the first country to receive resources from the
fund, which has US$ 1.5 billion (EUR 1 billion) to distribute from
2008-2012.
 
Australia will invest AU$ 300 million (EUR 183 million) over three years,
with AU$ 8 million (EUR 5 million) in 2008-09, to improve access to clean
water and sanitation. Priority areas for Australian aid are the Pacific and
Papua New Guinea.

CEPAL e InWEnt organizan en cooperación con GTZ.

En las últimas décadas América Latina y el Caribe ha avanzado en la cobertura y en la calidad de los servicios de agua potable y alcantarillado, sin embargo, los retos que todavía quedan son enormes:
la falta de cobertura se ha acelerado y sus efectos impactando gravemente la estabilidad económica, social y ambiental de los países.
