Sustainable Sanitation in Cuba

The nuts and bolts of housing and tourism development include the infrastructures that deal with waste. For us, it is a question of disposition, not disposal. Capturing, treating, and using what was considered waste in an effort to utilize valuable resources, protect the environment and public health, and prevent sewering are primary goals. RILES work in Cuba is through educational exchanges, like the ReSource led workshop in Havana on greywater recycling in March of 1998.

Grupo para el Desarrollo Integral de la Capital (GDIC)
GDIC is an urban planning organization with urban planners, architects, engineers, and sociologists on staff. Other project partners include the CUJAE, an architectural and engineering university in Havana.
