Search appropriate latrine solution for flood prone areas of Bangladesh
Government of Bangladesh (GoB) has set a goal for 100% sanitation by 2013. But, recurrent floods, cyclone and prolonged water logging make it harder to adapt appropriate sanitation for the displaced and those who are living with flood and water logging conditions. Every year on an average 20% area of Bangladesh are inundated due to annual flood and this is common and normal phenomenon. In Bangladesh, every year, a huge number of sanitation facilities are damaged or destroyed due to natural disaster like flood and cyclone. There is a huge demand for flood resistant, appropriate, socially and culturally accepted technological options for safe disposal of human excreta in the flood prone areas. However, there are limited technological options for sanitation for flood prone areas.
