This project aimed to rebuild the basic sanitation facilities within the earthquake damaged rural village to improve the living conditions. In addition, a dam to supply water was constructed beside the village, to prevent the village’s water source from being polluted by human sewage. Urine diversion dehydration toilets (UDDTs) were the chosen sustainable sanitation technology. Due to one of the key products produced in the village being peaches, there was the option of reuse of urine and dried faeces from UDDTs as fertiliser and soil conditioner.
