Re: 5th International Dry Toilet Conference 2015 - Program and registration (19-22 August 2015 in Tampere, Finland)

Dear All,

This sounds like a really interesting conference and it is unfortunate that the UBSUP programme in Kenya is not participating as we do have a lot to share about the progress that we have made in integrating dry toilets within the institutional framework of the water and health sector and addressing the full sanitation value chain.

More information about UBSUP is here: forum.susana.org/forum/categories/167-ma...-and-giz-kenya#11778

We have constructed UDDTs and have been able to train the clients in using them, we have identified Sanitation Team (emptiers) and have ensured that they are fully trained, registered and certified by the different institutions in the health and the water sector. In addition, we have constructed co-composting sheds and shall be scaling the concept to different counties through the different water service providers who are implementing the UBSUP programme.More information about our progress will be posted on our UBSUP SuSanA page.

I will definitely alert my colleagues to register early for the 6th International Dry Toilet Conference.

Enjoy the conference and please do inform us of the outcomes.

Best regards,

Doreen

It is a pity that China authorities are still throwing money to the traditional waste water treatment plants. No voices for dry toilets.Wish you all a successful meeting!
