- Re: CLTS doesn't lead to sustainable safe sanitation & hygiene - Study by Plan Australia - by: StephTTam March 12, 2014As someone who is going through IRC's WASH life-cycle costing course, I have to say that I find IRC's evaluation of sustainable sanitation very compelling albeit more suitable to issues of service rather than behavioural change. While I'm not saying that CLTS is a definitive solution to WASH behaviour change, I do think that the way the Plan s […]
- Acceptability - by: Maxie March 12, 2014I was asked by Elisabeth how girls (first time users) accept the Ruby Cup. And to be honest I cannot give a definite answer or mention a percentage because it depends. It really depends on the region, on the tribe on the culture and, of course, the girls as independent individuals themselves. This is why we at Ruby Cup always work in close cooperation with l […]

- Re: 12 March -16h00 : SuSanA–WASHtech webinar on Technology Applicability Framework (TAF) - by: fabiola March 12, 2014Hi Alison, Thanks for letting me know about the TAF webinar and its applications in Latin America. Surprisingly enough, we just got back from a work mission in Bluefields, Nicaragua, where hanging latrines in the bay area are -sadly, very common in the squatter settlements... Unfortunatly I missed the webinar by a few hours- please advice on how Sarar can ge […]
- Re: 12 March -16h00 : SuSanA–WASHtech webinar on Technology Applicability Framework (TAF) - by: jkohlitz March 12, 2014Thank you to the presenters and moderators today on the TAF webinar. One question I came up with toward the end: I see how the TAF can be a good decision-making tool for considering sustainability on the community-level after listening to the case studies from the presenters. But I guess it's a bit less clear to me how it can be used effectively for det […]

- Re: Developing fortified excreta pellets for use in agriculture - and From Waste to Food - Phase 1 and 2 (IWMI, Ghana) - by: muench March 12, 2014Dear Josiane and Funke, While writing up the above information about your presentation during webinar 6, I had 3 follow-up questions with some sub-questions: (1) Fredrick's question in the chat was missed out: Fredrick: Funke: That leaves out sludge from pit latrines, or are they seldom used as a technology? I had also wondered about solid waste. Are yo […]
- Re: TERRA PRETA SANITATION (TPS): Urine diversion or no diversion? - by: GeorgLiebig March 12, 2014Dear Ralph, thanks a lot for your comment. I also think that no-diversion can make sense in densely populated areas where people do not use urine for their own garden plots. In this case more cover material is necessary to soak up urine, right? What sort of material could possibly be used and how does this affect the fermentation? Is it then still necessary […]
- Re: Write-up from webinar 6 - Vapor-permeable membranes (Steve Dentel, University of Delaware, USA) - by: HakanJonsson March 12, 2014Dear Skedental, I just wanted to point out that this is an issue that ought to be watched out for, especially as Steve has not said that the PTFE is not on the surface of the bag meterial. I do realize that this is an interesting technology with many benefits, and these might well outweigh the potential risks. None the less, one should be aware also of poten […]
