ECOSEC container solution for refugee camp - proposal rejected but would like to share it anyhow

Dear all,

I've been told today that our concept note hasn't been selected for the UNHCR proposal (see here the call for proposals: forum.susana.org/forum/categories/95-cal...with-funding-by-bmgf ).

Ecosec Container solution for refugee camps

Our main idea was to gather urine from collective separation toilet in a bladder tank, so the farmers can pick up what they need with a hand pump.
I believe idea could be developed in some context, whatever separation technology is used.

Elizabeth, I was thinking about something, couln't you create the following new category of post : "I lost a proposal, but I'd like to share the idea on this forum"
In case someone would like to have a conversation about.

Best to all,

Ben

Dear Ben,

I like your idea:

I was thinking about something, couln't you create the following new category of post : "I lost a proposal, but I'd like to share the idea on this forum"
In case someone would like to have a conversation about it.

I've recently created this sub-category where I have moved your post to now:
"Looking for funding, partners, research topics or other types of support"

Does that match with your idea?

An alternative would be to move your proposal idea into the thematic sub-category where it fits best (is it in this case emergency sanitation or urine reuse)? It depends if you're looking more for funding or for a technical discussion about it.

Did you get any details why they rejected your proposal? I certainly like the look of your document, very nice with all these nice 3D-sketches. Hopefully you'll find another funding source for it... B)

Regards,
Elisabeth
