Content - Summary

Faced with limited space to dig latrines in some parts of the Farchana refugee camp in Chad and the collapse of latrines in sandy areas, SECADEV (a Chadian NGO) has been testing its own form of ecological toilet - family latrines that can be emptied. The ecological sustainable part is that space is saved (pits can be emptied when full; there is no need to dig again). Furthermore faeces are supposed to be reused for agricultural purposes.

Family latrines that can be emptied have been implemented in the respective refugee camp to address a number of problems. The primary goal has been to find a sustainable solution for sanitation that can be adapted in a protracted crisis context. Generally, there is a lack of space in the refugee camp to build new latrines. In addition, several hundred pit latrines have collapsed in the sandy soil. Therefore, the primary reason to implement the new family latrines has been their extended lifespan.
