- Low Cost Sanitation Workshop (Zambia)
20 août 2012 - 23 août 2012
First Quantum Mining (Zambia) -
Safe water, hygiene practices and sanitation are three of the primary drivers for improving public health. Extensive research and numerous evaluations have demonstrated that simply improving water supplies may have limited impact on improving people's health. However, improving sanitation and safely disposing of excreta can have a marked effect, and can reduce incidence of diarrhea by 36% or more. The greatest reductions in diarrheal incidence are possible when sanitation improvements are combined with improved hygiene practices and improved water supplies and water quality.
A successful sanitation program requires a thorough assessment of the social, cultural, environmental and technological factors that impact on the design of the different elements of the program. It is these factors that will guide the identification and selection of appropriate technology options, promotion approaches, and the actual methods of implementing the program.
- Theory: global water and sanitation issues; low cost sanitation technologies; social, cultural, economic and environmental issues; approaches for implementing sanitation programs; identifying the implementation approach and technology options.
- Practical: construction of a latrine slab, SanPlat slab, pour flush latrine slab, and domed slab.
- Implementation: selecting an appropriate range of technology options; selecting an appropriate implementation approach; developing an effective implementation plan; community promotion, education and participatory planning; requirements for a successful program; lessons learned and case studies; developing the vision and next steps after the workshop.
