This document sets out a framework for the enhancement of sanitation services in low-income countries. It is intended primarily to guide WaterAid country programmes as they determine their own context-specific sanitation strategies, but it is hoped that it will also be of value to other organisations which are involved in improving sanitation. The scope of the document spans both rural and urban contexts, but it does not specifically address the important topic of hygiene improvement. This will be the subject of a future WaterAid framework document. A further framework for WaterAid’s urban work is in the final stage of publication. This Sanitation framework is fully consistent with, and builds on, WaterAid’s Sanitation Guidelines (April 2008) which were initially developed at a conference in Livingstone, Zambia, in May 2006.

- Re: Integrating Climate Resilience in (national) Sanitation and Hygiene Strategy and Plans - looking for resources and experience - by: denniskl October 24, 2014Hi Peter Interesting topic but I am not quite clear about what you are looking for. By "Climate Resilient Development" are you raising design questions regarding sanitation systems that can be fortified / protected against climate change impacts?

I’m sure everyone involved in the program feels both how exciting it is to be working with other great pioneers, and also reco […]
- Re: latrine technology question about the use of two chamber rural latrine septic tanks - by: Emilio October 24, 2014hi As Florian said water is not safe or pathogene free, the first chamber just retains suspended and floating solids. Now the water table depth at 1.5 - 2 m seems quite superficial, and in case of heavy rain it may flood specially if soil infiltration rate is low. Under this conditions a two pit latrine may not be the best solution. Please give more details […]
- Re: Article in The Namibian newspaper: Communities unhappy with dry toilet project - by: muench October 24, 2014You sound very committed, Maria, that's excellent. I am sure you will do a very nice research project. If I had to pose a research question it would be "what is hampering the upscaling of Otji toilets in Namibia?" - rather than looking at some fine technical details of the toilet... Perhaps you could even team up with a second student and do i […]
