Re: Survey for PhD research: Validate Business Model innovation of Faecal Sludge Collection & Transport Service

Hi Tahunganh

Coming to think of it, I have now remembered Dr. Chris Burckley, a Chemical Engineer at the University of Kwazulu-Natal. I met the good scholar in Kigali, Rwanda during AfricaSan3 a few years ago.

I now have successfully traced him in SuSanA forum and he is reported to have contributed immensely to the subject matter and the following article is to his credit among others:

Questions on Faecal Sludge Management

He has also co-authored ‘Variation in VIP latrine sludge contents’ with BF Bakare*, KM Foxon, CJ Brouckaert whom I think could also help you in your thesis.

Kindly search the above article in the forum and go to a message box under his image for assistance.

Hi Tahunganh

Lastly, you could still seek guidance with Dr. Jamie Radford at Cambridge University who assisted us with valuable commentaries and advise in order to reach a successful conclusion during the abridgement and editing of Dr. Barbra Senkwe’s work for publication in the Africa Water, Sanitation & Hygiene.

His contact is at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Am sure that’s enough for a day.

Please feel free to contact the forum for further assistance.
