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.

It confirms what has become clear from other people's information that it takes longer to discharge than suggested by theoretical calculations based on orifice theory. This may be partly due to the point already made by Shaji that the operators do not always open the valve fully to avoid splashing. I think it mea […]
- Re: Time taken for faecal sludge tankers to discharge? - by: Reetu January 18, 2017Hello Kevin, This is late now but just wanted to share unloading time in context of Nepal. We, Environment and Public Heath Organization (ENPHO), had done questionnaire survey with the sludge emptier of Kathamndu valley, capital city of Nepal, and also recorded the time of unloading by ourselves. According to them and from our experience, it takes 7 to 10 mi […]
- Re: Dry toilets in Ethiopia - by: marrath January 17, 2017Hello Manuel, there are several aspects to consider when choosing a sanitation technology. For information about the technologies I would suggest the Compendium of Sanitation by Tilley et. al. 2014. There, the different technologies are well described. I only have experience in Arba Minch, in the Southern Region of Ethiopia. During the ROSA project (Resource […]
- Re: The Tiger Toilet which works with worms - like in-situ vermi-composting (field trials in India, Uganda and Burma) - Bear Valley Ventures Limited, UK - by: smecca January 17, 2017Dean, Effectively, the GSAP Microflush toilet is open source. We only ask that those intending to build our toilets get proper training. Putting our training guide on-line opens the door to someone taking a shortcut or scaling in the wrong direction leaving a potential bad mark on our design. If you have artesans in a community where you are working, we woul […]
