The focus in this categories is on technologies required along the sanitation chains - primarily toilets, transport and treatment (but not reuse as this is in a separate category called "Resource recovery").
This includes anything to do with (wet) faecal sludge collected from pit latrines and septic tanks. Note the sub-category on transport and emptying issues.

Business, governance

This is a broad category that contains topics in the area of business (e.g. markets, economics, business models, market development, value chain development) as well as topics in the area of governance (policies, upscaling, enabling environment, global political processes). This category could also be split in two in future if needed, but we did not want to have too many categories on the forum. The first three sub-categories below belong to the business part; the others to the governance part.
