Re: Sanitation Capacity Building Platform

Depinder, in a conversation we has in Stockholm last week you referenced studies done that compared biofil toilets to others in terms of ability to clean outputs. Can you post those results?

Re: City Sanitation Research Studies - India

Hi Depinder
Just wanted to flag an excellent article from Oct 2, 2018 Business Standard, titled: Why we need to realise value of trained masons to ensure safe sanitation.

Here is the link:
www.business-standard.com/article/curren...-118100200162_1.html

It reports on a survey of masons done by the Tamil Nadu Urban Sanitation Support Programme (TNUSSP) and supported by the Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS). This project is also described in the SuSanA project database www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/projects/database/details/575

Re: City Sanitation Research Studies - India

Yes this is a good article. The Tamil Nadu Masons Training.

Thanks for sharing.

How to upscale such trainings and how to include aspects of cost savings in construction designing is important.

We have just embarked on the first level of capacity building in FSSM and need to find out how to carry it forward to a higher level of capacity building and training.
