Fate of pharmaceuticals in the environment and in water treatment systems

The detection of pharmaceutical residues remained elusive till tools similar to liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry turned typical in environmental laboratories. The documentation of the incidence of pharmaceutical residues and endocrine disrupting chemical substances in water assets has raused questions on their long term results within the environment and their capability results on human future health.

Example text

A country, then, has its “government” and public administration system as its formal tools to make this possible. Other less formal systems do exist as well. This definition emphasizes the linkage of capacity with a verifiable impact on-the-ground after the “act” as well as with the generation of fresh knowledge. It also points out that critical “extra” capacity is required to allocate the resources and incentive for continual learning and improvement that characterize the “learning organization’.

In many countries nominally adequate numbers of graduates are churned out by universities and polytechnics, but their specializations and skills may not be attuned to the modern challenges and the expectations from the societies they are supposed to serve. “Education” should also be understood to go well beyond tertiary education, and society at large and youth in particular need to be educated about water and how it impacts their future. Finally, “education and training” encompasses a wide gamut of instruments spanning from conventional class-room teaching to Objective-Based Learning, hands-on learning and mentoring.

These disciplines should be acknowledged by KCD practitioners as important sources of knowledge. Often, policy papers and working documents on KCD are not based on solid and disciplinary research but rather on prima facie observation and intuitive analysis. 1 Disciplines that contribute to understanding of KCD in the water sector (Alaerts, 2009). 2 11 LINEAR APPROACH VS. COMPLEX SYSTEMS APPROACH TO KCD A first important development in the understanding of KCD is the distinction that is made between a linear approach and a dynamic systems or complexity approach.
