Inventory for Formal and Informal Faecal Sludge Emptiers and the Resource Recovery and Reuse (RRR) Private Sector in Kampala

In Kampala, about 90% of the people rely on on-site sanitation solutions, which cannot be considered “improved” or “acceptable” in most cases: too many households share one toilet; pit-latrines are unlined, filled with solid wastes, and hard to access for emptying services, ultimately leading to filled-up facilities that are either abandoned or directly emptied into the environment, …

Preventing environmental enteric dysfunction through improved water, sanitation and hygiene: an opportunity for stunting reduction in developing countries
Review Article in: Maternal & Child Nutrition

In 2011, one in every four (26%) children under 5 years of age worldwide was stunted.

Essentially, ingested microbes set in motion two overlapping and …
