Sata vuotta vesihuoltoa Suomessa 1917-2017

Hankkeen tavoitteena on tuottaa näkemyksellistä tietoa Suomen vesihuollon kehityksestä viimeisen sadan vuoden ajalta ja sen merkityksestä yhteiskunnassa.

Projekti on osa Suomen itsenäisyyden satavuotisjuhlavuoden ohjelmaa.

Tutkimushankkeessa perehdytään keskeisiin valintoihin tutkimuksen kohteena olevilla vesihuoltolaitoksilla, vertaillaan eri paikkakuntien strategisia valintoja ja käännepisteitä sekä laaditaan näiden pohjalta vertaileva, monitieteinen analyysi pitkän aikavälin kehityksestä. Tämän ja kohdelaitosten ja myös alan keskeisten vaikuttajien haastattelujen perusteella pohditaan tulevaisuuden haasteita ja mahdollisuuksia. Tutkimushankkeeseen kohteena on useita suomalaisia vesilaitoksia eri puolelta Suomea.

Tutkimushankkeen tuloksena valmistuu FT, dos. Petri Juutin, UNESCO oppituolin haltija, dos. Tapio Katkon ja  Yliopistotutkija, TkT Riikka Rajalan kirjoittama kirja Sata vuotta vesihuoltoa Suomessa 2017.

VIWAFU

The broad objective of the VIWAFU Network and its activities is to enhance knowledge and understanding of the diversity of research approaches as well as inter- and multidisciplinary research regarding water resources and water services in their wider institutional framework that covers the political, economic, social, technological, environmental and legal dimensions.

The focus of this network is on involving PhD students and postdocs, and also some MSc students, supported by professors and other teaching or research staff of participating universities. Each participating institution has its own strong areas which will be utilised in network activities.

Through meetings, sharing experiences and comparisons the network will provide knowledge on water management and governance for future policy and decision making in the Nordic and Baltic countries and the European Union.

The coordinating team of the network is the Capacity Development in Water and Environmental Services (CADWES) team at Tampere University of Technology (TUT). Other partners of VIWAFU Network are:

– The Urban Management research team at the Technical University of Denmark
– The International Environmental History Group (IEHG) at University of Tampere (UTA), Finland
– The Hydrology Centre, Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Iceland
– The Water Resources Engineering Department at the University of Lund, Sweden
– The Department of Environmental Science, Faculty of Geography, University of Latvia
– The Department of Environment, Kaunas University of Technology, Lithuania
