- Re: Should shared sanitation services be considered 'improved' sanitation? (and MDG implications) - by: JKMakowka April 23, 2014The Ugandan government figure that includes shared sanitation is something like 70% coverage, while the MDG figure is something like 30%. Even though I agree that shared sanitation is better than nothing in most cases (and is definitely needed in urban settings) it is mainly an additional service to household level sanitation and can't replace it. Thus […]

Thank you for your post, and please send me more information on how to start. I am hung up on the details of where to start, and what regulations/permitting demands there are for urban areas.

- Re: should shared sanitation services be considered 'improved' sanitation? - by: muench April 23, 2014It depends what you compare it to: Shared sanitation is usually not as good as household-level sanitation but shared sanitation can be better than nothing (or better than open defecation). Just think of the acclaimed Sanergy model with shared (public) sanitation... (forum.susana.org/forum/categories/52-mob...ry-loo-user-and-kiva) So I do think that "sha […]

- Re: should shared sanitation services be considered 'improved' sanitation? - by: joeturner April 23, 2014Thanks Krischan - can you tell me some of the non-technical and non-health related reasons why you think they should not count towards the policy goal (or maybe that is not your opinion but the one held in Uganda, I'm not clear from your post).
- Re: The Fecal Sludge Omni-Ingestor (FSOI) suite of technologies (several companies, USA) - by: FrancisdelosReyes April 23, 2014To be clear about Elisabeth's post above, we were discussing by email what we saw at the RRTF in Delhi. In fairness, FSOI is a proponent of standardizing sludge testing in the context of fecal sludge pumping, as they are working with Jamie Radford, who has developed a penetrometer that can be used in the field. The measurements cited above are from Jami […]
- Re: should shared sanitation services be considered 'improved' sanitation? - by: JKMakowka April 23, 2014This is a constant topic here in Uganda as the government is counting shared facilities towards their sanitation coverage goal. I think that due to mostly non-technical and non-health related reasons they should not count towards a policy goal (which the MDG "improved sanitation" category is).
- Should shared sanitation services be considered 'improved' sanitation? (and MDG implications) - by: joeturner April 23, 2014Hello friends, I've just noticed this interesting review article in PlOS ONE: www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10....journal.pone.0093300 The authors say that shared facilities are not counted as improved sanitation (for example for MDG target), but that maybe they should be. Interested to hear thoughts. Edit: On closer examination, it does seem to […]
