Hi,

in our water and sanitation project in Moldova, we have set up a small scheme for subsidizing and providing technical support to households in villages for constructing a household UDDT, with about 50 units installed. Before moving on and doing the same on a larger scale, we would like to assess the installed toilets. The idea is to visit all toilets and to check a set of predefined criteria or indicators on user satisfaction, state of maintenance, use/disposal of urine and dried faeces, etc.

Before developing the checklist/questionnaire for the assessment, I'd like to see if perhaps anyone here has done something similar and has examples of checklists, questionnaires, criteria for the assessment or monitoring of UDDTs or similar that we could use as inspiration.

Thanks and best regards,
Florian

Dear Florian,
That's a good question, I hope we can get a few example surveys of UDDTs collected here.

I remembered this report by Doreen Mbalo in Kenya (although it does not give the list of questions used):
susana.org/lang-en/library?view=ccbktype...p;type=2&id=1579

UDDTs from the same project (i.e. the former EU Ecosan Promotion Project in Kenya) were evaluated earlier in detail by Laura Kraft (now with Sanergy), she focussed on the quality of the dried and stored materials (urine and faeces):
susana.org/lang-en/library/library?view=...p;type=2&id=1026

This document, also by Laura Kraft, includes the questionnaire she used when she evaluated UDDTs from the ROSA project in Nakuru:
susana.org/lang-en/library/library?view=...p;type=2&id=1196

Then I put the word "evaluation" into the SuSanA library search field and found this MSc thesis from a Finnish student called Kirsikka (she also wrote here on the forum: forum.susana.org/forum/categories/34-uri...dts-in-western-kenya) - also evaluating said UDDTs in Kenya:
susana.org/lang-en/library/library?view=...p;type=2&id=1581

Pynnönen, K. (2012). Ecosan in schools: post-evaluation of the operation of urine diverting dry toilets in rural schools in Kenya - Factors affecting their sustainability. Master of Science Thesis, Tampere University of Technology, Finland.

This evaluation document from Uganda from 2005 might be worth a look:
susana.org/lang-en/library/library?view=...p;type=2&id=1473

I will also ask David Crosweller from WTN who works in India with UDDTs and has also conducted an assessment recently, I think.

Hope this helps a little bit. Please let us know if you find more example questionnaires and share the one you end up using, and your results. Thanks.

Regards,
Elisabeth
