Implementer's Guide to Lime Stabilization for Septage Management in the Philippines

This manual is meant to be helpful for cities as it features a step-by-step procedure for establishing a septage management program using a combination of hydrated lime slurry and sand drying beds as the main treatment process. The manual captures the experience of Tacloban City, Philippines, which employed the system following Typhoon Yolanda to treat septage and sewage collected from evacuation centers and other temporary shelters.

Evaluating the Potential of Container-Based Sanitation

In the face of urbanization, alternative approaches are needed to deliver adequate and inclusive sanitation services across the full sanitation service chain. Container-based sanitation (CBS) consists of an end-to-end service—that is, one provided along the whole sanitation service chain—that collects excreta hygienically from toilets designed with sealable, removable containers and strives to ensure that the excreta is safely treated, disposed of, and reused.

In addition, charcoal made from illegally logged trees is a major source of cooking fuel in Kenya, contributing to deforestation and to unhealthy indoor air quality.

Webinar: Involving The Private Sector In Increasing Access To Basic Sanitation In Bihar And Abidjan

Only 22% of Abidjan’s population has access to basic sanitation. Many low-income residents of the city live in compound houses of 4 to 45 persons, who share a common toilet. The situation is not too different in Bihar, India where only 30% of the population have access to basic sanitation, and open defecation is still rife.

The USAID Sanitation Service Delivery Project (SSD) held this webinar in April 2017 to explore successes and failures of the strategies from:

A Guide to Strengthening the Enabling Environment for Faecal Sludge Management: Experience from Bangladesh, Kenya and Zambia

This guide presents an introduction to conceptualising and strengthening the enabling environment for faecal sludge management (FSM) services in low-income urban areas.

It is based on WSUP’s experience working with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop market-based solutions for on-site sanitation services in the cities of Dhaka and Chittagong (Bangladesh), Kisumu (Kenya) and Lusaka (Zambia).
