- Dr Peter Morgan June 3, 2013Peter Morgan – one of my Champions − has been awarded this year’s Stockholm Water Prize. Really well deserved! Congratulations Peter!
- Good question! January 30, 2013The cover of the 10 January issue of The Economist:
- World Toilet Day November 19, 2012Today is World Toilet Day – see here and also ThePublicToilet.com. The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, in association with Domestos, has released this report which is well worth reading: Toilets for Health.
- No toilet, no bride! November 16, 2012In the UK Daily Mail of 23 October: No toilet? Then no bride − the Indian government's bizarre new campaign to increase indoor lavatories. Well, that’s one way of promoting sanitation!
- Top three toilets? October 31, 2012From the Gates Foundation website (dated 14 August): ‘Bill Gates Names Winners of the Reinvent the Toilet Challenge’:California Institute of Technology in the United States received the $100,000 first prize for designing a solar-powered toilet that generates hydrogen and electricity. Loughborough University in the United Kingdom won the $60,000 second place […]
- Agroforestry and arborloos August 8, 2012In a letter to The Economist (28 July 2012) Tony Simons, Director General of the World Agroforestry Centre in Nairobi, writes that, to reduce hunger and promote food security in the Sahel, agroforestry is the way forward. As he notes, “Trees provide not only ecological resilience but also cash income, energy, environmental services, fodder for animals and nu […]
- Erdos: “World's biggest eco-toilet scheme fails” July 31, 2012“The dry toilets in Inner Mongolia's Daxing eco-community have been quietly replaced after three years of bad smells, health problems and maggots.” Oops! See the full entry in the Guardian Environment Network (30 July 2012).
- Fossas alternas July 30, 2012IRC has on its website a good photo-sequence on how to build a fossa alterna: “This photo story shows you how to construct a fossa alterna, how to empty it and how to process the compost. After 12−18 months of composting it is safe to empty a fossa alterna toilet and use the compost as fertilizer for your garden soil”. Fossas alternas? Read Peter Morgan’s To […]
- Rural sanitation July 27, 2012What Does It Take to Scale Up Rural Sanitation? by Eduardo Perez and published earlier this month by the Water and Sanitation Program is an important document because, as the report’s webpage says, “Today, 2.5 billion people live without access to improved sanitation. … Of those without access to sanitation, 75 percent live in rural areas [emphasis added].” […]
- The 2011 Pumphandle Lecture July 26, 2012Have a look at the John Snow Society’s 2011 Pumphandle Lecture Epidemiology for the Bottom Billion – where there’s not even a pump handle to remove! by Hans Rosling who’s a professor at the Karolinska Institute and also chairman of the Gapminder Foundation. An excellent lecture. Check out the Gapminder videos − you’ll find some pretty stunning ones!Who’s Joh […]

- Re: Forum user of the month for November 2013 is Doreen Mbalo from Kenya !! - by: muench December 9, 2013Dear Mughal, At the moment, the award is one which involves openly and publicly recognising the person's contributions and making the person's name more well known in the sector. Do you have particular ideas for "instituting awards to be given to the winners" - do you mean some price money? Or free attendance at the next SuSanA meeting, i […]
- Re: What should we keep in mind for forum users who have a slow internet connection? - by: jankn December 9, 2013There is also something one can do from a user's perspective: The Opera browser has something called "Turbo" (in older versions) or "Off-Road Mode" (in the most recent version). If this feature is enabled, the websites you browse are redirected via the Opera servers and all images are compressed significantly before sent to you; you […]
- Re: More compact DEWATS technology? - by: jankn December 9, 2013Hi Detlef Thank you for the questions. We do have quite some DEWATS here that us biogas (e.g. one in a slum-resettlement colony directly opposite our current office where we currently do some research on performance during hydraulic and organic overloading), however, I cannot speak for our partner organizations that implemented the DEWATS I talked about earl […]

- Re: Seeking input on configuration of urine collection pipes for a project that is revising plumbing codes - by: muench December 9, 2013Dear Abe, I just want to make you that you didn't miss previous discussions we had here on the forum about this topic of urine diversion systems in countries of the Global North. As you will see from my posts, I am rather skeptical about it. Here is an exchange I had with Dena and Kai, when looking at the situation in Australia and Germany/Switzerland: […]
- Re: Seeking input on configuration of urine collection pipes for a project that is revising plumbing codes - by: kudert December 9, 2013Hi Abe This is great news that you are working on revising plumbing codes for urine collection systems. Revised codes will be a huge support for these new sanitation concepts. At Eawag, we installed our first urine diverstion systems in 1997. The first toilets were only installed for experiments, but since 2006 we have a full-scale urine-diverting system (No […]
- Re: Toilet design for a unique situation - by: canaday December 8, 2013Hi Bsams, A nice Urine-diverting Dry Toilet (UDDT) with an ample vent pipe, maybe 11 or 16 cm diameter, should be fine and odor-free inside the building, especially if a permanent staff member is interested and willing to check on it daily ... and education and consciousness-raising among the children should be constant, with an emphasis at the beginning of […]
