The Emergency Sanitation Project, a collaboration between IFRC, WASTE and Oxfam GB, has launched a design contest for public urinals.
The urinals should be attractive and safe to use, lightweight to transport by air to emergency situations and easy to install. The urinals need to be equipped with a urine management facility: a storage container that can be emptied or, in the worst case a soak pit for disposal. The urinal should be suitable for children, adult men, adult women or the less abled
- Twelve project will be selected for final review: 3 for children, 3 for adult men, 3 for adult women and 3 for less abled.
- The finalist will present their design concept to the judging panel on world toilet day 2013, 19th November 2013.
- The emergency sanitation project will approach producers to produce the designs of the overall top finalist.
- The overall top finalist will receive a field visit of a week including travel and lodging to the country where the produced design will be field-tested or € 1000 cash.
Application deadline: 12:00 pm GMT Friday, 18 October 2013
