Information on improved latrine options
This booklet is really meant to be useful to anyone interested in and working on sanitation programs, and raise people’s awareness of options, create sanitation demand and work on actual construction of latrines. Typical users may include government health workers, NGOs, CBOs, IOs, facilitators, natural leaders, and people engaged in sanitation, and so on. We hope that this booklet may increase sanitation demand in Indonesia, and enable people to make informed choices about technically feasible and affordable sanitation options.
We leave the decision about how to best present this information to the creativity
of the user. However, it makes sense to ensure that some basic ideas have been
understood before moving on to more detailed subjects.
For example, make sure that everybody understands what a latrine is before
discussing detailed designs.
We do hope that all stakeholders in both governmental and non-governmental
agencies who are responsible for rural sanitation programs will use this Informed
Choice Manual for Improved Latrine Selection to improve rural households’ access
to sanitation in order to achieve the MDG goals by 2015.
