Dear Elisabeth (and everyone),

I just wanted to provide an update on the publication you had asked about back in January. I am an environmental engineer from the US, spending the next four months in the Sustainable Sanitation Programme at GIZ. In the last few weeks, I have been working with Christian to move the publication on sustainable sanitation in schools further along towards completion. It is our hope that we should be able to send a draft out to the SuSanA partners whose work is highlighted shortly to let them review the stories. We should then be able to use their feedback to make further edits, and then we should be able to move further along to things like layout, design, etc. (The plan at this point is still to have an actual publication as opposed to a Wiki.)

I’m not sure I can tell you exactly when it will be available, but I just wanted you to know that it hasn’t been forgotten and is still being worked on!

Best,
Amanda

Dear Amanda,
I somehow managed to overlook this thread all the time. Are you still able include more case studies? In our project in Moldova, we support a lot (more than 30 so far) of schools with constructing UDDT toilets blocks, with quite some good success. Here some information.
Let me know if you're interested to include that case, I'd try to put together the information you need then.
Best, Florian

Dear Florian,

I apologize for the slow response to your post, but if you are still interested we would love to have the case study of your work in Moldova! I can forward you a copy of the other stories, so you have a sense of the style of the other stories.

Best,
Amanda

How about my story ?

During 2008-2010, encouraged by Arno and I , the SOHO China Foundation built UDDT for 31 schools with about 20,000 students and teachers in Gansu province of China.

As a volunteer for teaching the students to use the toilets, I have been using the urine to grow cherries and apples with a good profit since 2010.

In 2011, the harvest was around 5,000 kg apples with a income of 120,000 RMB cooperating with one orchard owner.

In 2012, the harvest was 60,000 kg apples,cherries and vegetables with an income of 1.3 million RMB working with 30 orchard owners.

In 2013, I cut the production to 40,000 kg apples and cherries with an income of 1.1 million RMB becuase of the insufficient urine.

The profit to my family is about 0.8 million RMB for the apple and urine business during last 3 years. Neither the schools nor the farmers pay me for transporting the urine.

Marketing and orders processing are done by the Internet 100%. The products are delivered to the thousands of customers in big cities over 1,000 km away. Over 50% orderes were placed on us before the actual harvest.

Within last 12 months, among 1485 comments on the product quality , only 3 bad comments were found.

Over 3,000 people have been registered as my potential customers in my Internet homepage shop72303853.taobao.com/shop/view_shop.h..._number_id=889090749 .

Over 30 news media have covered my story of apple and urine giving me many opportunies to advocate the sustainable sanitation business.

Yes, it is a good idea to have SuSana partners to review the publication.
best regards
