Logistics of human excreta in Uganda
It could be shown in this thesis that improving sanitation has various effects on the issues of slums, undernourishment and public health. Further on, the concept of sustainable sanitation was introduced and the effects of this sanitation practice, particularly economic effects were considered and their relevancy for sustainable development regarding the MDGs could be shown. Finally, all insights gained during the preparation of this thesis were combined and had been transformed into a real world example. The example showed that it is possible to combine convenient slum sanitation infrastructure with the idea of circular nutrient management in urban areas to design a large scale sustainable sanitation system.
