Sanitation security model

Hello colleagues,

My name is Bolaji Ogunfemi, a third year PhD student in London researching 'Sanitation and Human Security in South Sudan'. I developed a 'Sanitation Security' model for the research and it was tested last year during fieldwork in South Sudan. As a way of making public the model and how my findings fits into it, I have written a 10 page preliminary report (which I have attached) on what the model is and its importance to sanitation research, policy and practice today. A subsequent report will be made available in due course on how it relates to my findings and the project management uses. I shall be grateful if partners could find time to read the report and offer opinions, suggestions and questions.

Thank you.

Re: Sanitation security model

Dear Bolaji,

Welcome to the forum! Do tell us more about your PhD? If you are in the third year, then you are already quite far advanced. Have you been doing field work in South Sudan?
I looked at your attached report but couldn't really get my head around it to ask any meaningful questions. It seems very theoretical and I can't picture how you could "calibrate" this model or compare it with data.
Also I wonder why health seems to play no role in your model?

Perhaps you have a powerpoint presentation available that explains more about your work and thesis?

Kind regards,
