- Re: Wash in Nut Posters - by: muench August 1, 2014Dear Carlotta, I took a look at the 3 posters that you shared with us. They are, as you said, still in an early stage of development. I quite like the first one, although I cannot imagine how you can make it visually pleasing as it looks quite complex (which is what makes it interesting). So I am wondering: who is actually your target group for these posters […]

It will help save time and money of other researchers. But the point is what went wrong? Your process of biodiesel production appeared to be lucrative. Is there any problem with the process or technically not feasible to achieve the assumptions. I remember you had mentioned the production of […]

I read briefly about this effort for a national law for water/sanitation in France on the Coalition Eau website the other day, but I didn't know it required: "local authorities would make available and would maintain sanitary facilities for the poorest people: public toilets and free in public more than […]

- Re: A product development framework for emergency excreta disposal (PhD research) - by: yokepean August 1, 2014Hi Chris, I think the use of water is a key factor here. My colleague interviewed some people at evacuation camps who would rather wait to go to the toilet than to defecate without using water. Unfortunately it would be difficult to change such behavior in emergency situations. Best wishes Yoke

While on a mission in Bangladesh I visited a tea stall where I saw a lot of men getting their daily cup of tea. Tea stalls are a common phenomenon in Bangladesh, it is a place where people gather not just for tea, but to hang out and talk freely about whatever is important to them. Male field workers in the BRAC WASH programme have started visiting these stalls to discuss sanitation and hygiene practices.
Forum theatres are one of WaterAid’s new approaches of improving hygiene in Bangladesh by focusing on men. See below photos of a pilot show in Jogdol bazaar, Magura in west Bangladesh.
Hygiene promotion for men is also being addressed in an EU-funded rehabilitation project in Nepal being carried out by NGO Nepal Water for Health (NEWAH), with support from the IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre. Read more in IRC’s Source Bulletin.
Local health workers in Nepal are performing in village plays to promote men’s hygiene.
