Re: Research partners for technology and low cost solutions in Vietnam

Could the definition of "septic tank latrine" be further clarified? If greywater doesn't go into the septic tank, where would it go? Is the hygiene criteria different for greywater?

Re: Research partners for technology and low cost solutions in Vietnam

Thank you Elisabeth

A presentation is attached with the key findings from this research. The research report is actually not finalized and ready to share.

Q: What did you mean by "septic tank latrines"? Have you already found the research partners you were looking for?

A: A septic tank latrine in Vietnam is defined as a toilet with an in-built septic tank. The Vietnam Ministry of Health (MoH)
has developed a stringent set of criteria for hygienic latrines.

We have partnered with the Asian Institute of Technology in Thailand (AIT) to conduct this pilot research in Vietnam.

If there are other Susana members conducting FSM pilots in rural or peri-urban Vietnam, we would definitely be interested in staying connected.

Re: Research partners for technology and low cost solutions in Vietnam

Dear Georgia,

You said:

We just completed a landscape FSM study that covers these three areas in rural Vietnam.

Would you be able/willing to share this study here on the Forum? Could be useful for many people.

Secondly, I didn't quite understand this part:

We are now searching for research partners with technology and knowledge of low cost solutions for septic tank latrines that could be piloted at small scale for rural areas in Vietnam with average to high density.

What did you mean by "septic tank latrines"? Have you already found the research partners you were looking for?

Regards,
Elisabeth

Dear georgia,
I am conducting a similar research in rural areas in Cambodia for an ADB/ MRD project.
I will contact Hanh nguyen by email.
Thanks for this contact!

Research partners for technology and low cost solutions in Vietnam

East Meets West, a US-based NGO with operations in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, is conducting FSM research in rural areas of Vietnam. Our research covers demand generation for emptying services, sludge collection and transport services, and disposal/reuse treatment. We just completed a landscape FSM study that covers these three areas in rural Vietnam. We are now searching for research partners with technology and knowledge of low cost solutions for septic tank latrines that could be piloted at small scale for rural areas in Vietnam with average to high density.
