A new endline report discusses how Peru’s enabling environment for handwashing with soap has progressed since 2007. The research, conducted by the Water and Sanitation Program (WSP), indicates that the enabling environment has been strengthened at both national and regional levels. In addition, efforts to integrate and institutionalize handwashing with soap behavior change into national, regional, and local policies related to health and nutrition, education, water, and sanitation have largely been achieved.
- 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 […]
- The Fecal Sludge Omni-Ingestor (FSOI) suite of technologies (several companies, USA) - by: muench April 23, 2014Dear all, I am providing information below about a prototype faecal sludge "omni-ingestor" that I saw at the Reinvent the Toilet Fair in Delhi in March. This project has not been described on the forum to date; it is not a grant but the work is being carried out under a contract agreement with the BMGF. So the companies developing this piece of equ […]
- Re: CuveWaters: Sanitation & Water Reuse in Namibia - by: CuveWaters April 23, 2014Dear Amanda, thank you so much for your kind response and I am very sorry for taking so long with answering your questions. Here we go..... First how long has the system been in operation, and how many people in the town does it employ? The plant is in operation since April 2013. The waste water treatment plant is designed for 1500 people. Currently roughly […]
- Re: VIDEO: Solving the World's Toilet Shortage - by: joeturner April 23, 2014This is good, Dani, I like it - even though I dislike the language of 'toilets', the problems can only be solved with sustainable systems, not just the toilet. Interesting comments below the video too, I've been thinking for a while that it would be interesting to talk to the military (of various countries) about systems that they use in tempo […]
