Re: New Construction Manual for double-chamber dry composting toilets !Only for money?!

Dear Moderators and "USERS" of SUSANA,

SUSANA's-Know-How - Only for money?

Is this kind of promotion the future of SUSANA in mid-term or long-term?

as it been posted by SUSANA's office at GIZ:
"...This manual has a cost of $15 USD or €11 Euros and is delivered via e-mail in PDF format. The promotional value until September 15th is of $10 USD or €8 Euros...."

In long-term, maybe 5 cent per viewing SUSANA web-page, payable per Paypal...?

Re: New Construction Manual for double-chamber dry composting toilets !Only for money?!

Dear Detlef,

I am sorry to hear that the posting did not come as appropriate for you. Let me just clarify in order to avoid further misunderstandings.

It is not the SuSanA secretariat who is promoting this publication, but a Chilean organization (TierraSur) who is advertising their manual. We received a notification from staff of the Stockholm Environmental Institute recommending to spread the word about this document.

The reason for the post is that the original message was received in Spanish. I translated it into English in case people in seek/need of a product/service of such nature were aware of it.

Nobody is obliged to buy anything they don't want/need/like. As far as we know, these are compiled experiences from Chile and TierraSur is simply trying to raise funding to cover costs.

As much as we would like for information to always remain free of charge, some organisations have to find ways to raise fundings or cover costs. This is the reason why I posted the notice under the section "Persons or companies offering their skills or products". Some might come as free of charge, while others might not. We simply represent the medium to inform about it and let the users decide by themselves.

Furthermore, the SuSanA forum has no intention to start charging money for its use in the future, you don't have to worry about it.

Kind regards,

Hector

Re: New Construction Manual for double-chamber dry composting toilets (in Spanish, from Chile)

Estimad@s participantes de la Red Alianza para el Saneamiento Sostenible ( www.susana.org ):
Junto con saludarles, queremos responder a la inquietud de por qué el costo del manual de construcción de una baño seco de doble cámara.
Hemos intentado buscar financiamiento para su publicación, pero no recibimos respuesta positiva a ello, de manera que luego decidimos ponerlo a la venta para financiar las horas profesionales invertidas de redacción y diseño involucrados en la producción del manual.
Somos una organización pequeña, autogestionada que no recibe aportes ni del estado ni de organizaciones privadas e internacionales, nuestro financiamiento proviene de la realización de cursos, talleres, asesorías, y de la venta de artefactos de baños secos.
Nuestro interés por cierto es sensibilizar, promover y divulgar información relacionada con saneamiento ecológico y lo hacemos a través de nuestro sitio web www.sanitario-ecologico.com y también a través de nuestras redes locales.
Fraternalmente,

Equipo Saneamiento Cooperativa TerritorioSur

Together with hello, we want to address the concern of why the cost of manual construction of a dual-chamber dry toilet.
We tried to find funding for publication, but did not receive a positive response to it, so then we decided to put it up for sale to fund professional hours invested in drafting and design involved in the production of the manual.
We are a small, self-managed does not receive contributions or the state or private and international organizations, our funding comes from the completion of courses, workshops, consulting, and selling dry toilets artifacts.
Our interest of course is to sensitize, promote and disseminate information related to ecological sanitation and we do through our website www.sanitario-ecologico.com and also through our local networks.
Fraternally,
