More affordable sanitation technologies and participatory community interventions will make future hygiene promotion more effective, say two PhD-fellows Xuan Le Thi Thanh and Thilde Rheinländer. They have spent 16 months in ethnic minority communities in the Northern Province Lao Cai to do research on hygiene and sanitation promotion in the Danida-funded research project SANIVAT (Water Supply Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion in Vietnam). SANIVAT supports research and capacity building on the impacts of water, sanitation and hygiene interventions and investigates how people perceive hygiene, health risks and hygiene promotion.
- Re: Should this working group (WG 9) champion the behavior change topic? - by: WASHanna August 28, 2016Hi Everyone, I wanted to flag this thread after the SuSanA 22 meeting yesterday where we discussed the topic of developing a new hygiene BC Working Group. The PPT slides that I used are available here. During the brief discussion period, it was mentioned that we should be clear about whose behavior are we seeking to change? Governments or donors? (I would ar […]
- Re: UDDT versus Pour Flush (with vermi-composting) versus ???: which are sustainable sanitation technologies and systems for peri-urban areas in Africa? - by: kevintayler August 28, 2016Dear Hajo Thanks for your quick reply. First of all, I agree entirely that there is plenty of scope for outsiders to engage with people to develop improved sanitation approaches.

- Re: UDDT versus Pour Flush (with vermi-composting) versus ???: which are sustainable sanitation technologies and systems for peri-urban areas in Africa? - by: hajo August 28, 2016Dear Kevin, Thanks for your posting, I am always happy seeing ‘new faces’ on this thread. I fully agree that we cannot ignore what ‘people are doing themselves’, how they judge their doing, what they want, what ‘official rules and regulations say’, and what the attitude is towards sanitation in general and towards specific solutions in particular. But I thin […]
- Re: UDDT versus Pour Flush (with vermi-composting) versus ???: which are sustainable sanitation technologies and systems for peri-urban areas in Africa? - by: kevintayler August 27, 2016It all depends on whether you think that we should start from where people are or from where we would like them to be. Whatever we 'experts' think, many people in peri-urban areas do use some form of pit latrine, in most cases financing and paying for the latrine themselves. There are many issues with this - I would favour efforts to promote low-vo […]
