Content - Summary

The Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) publishes case studies of sustainable sanitation projects from around the world to demonstrate the wide range of available technologies for sustainable sanitation systems. This case study book only comprises those project examples which are from African countries. The currently existing 25 case studies in Africa are compiled together in this book, with descriptions of well-running projects as well as of less successful projects so that we can learn from past mistakes.
