What is the existing fecal sludge management in Port Harcourt and how can it be improved?
Santiation services in Port Harcourt, Nigeria are limited. Most residents in formal city neighborhoods maintain their own septic tanks, very often emptying the contents in illegal dump sites. Residents of informal settlements use hanging piers or ‘flying toilets’. Waste is not being safely managed across most of Port Harcourt.
We aim to understand existing fecal sludge management in Port Harcourt and support the improvement of waste removal, transport, and disposal services and standards. We will work with local governing bodies and institutions to develop sustainable and affordable fecal sludge management solutions at city level and in low income areas.
