The second issue of Sustainable Sanitation Practice (SSP) focuses on "Successful models for operation and maintenance of sanitation systems".
Examples of different approaches and experiences of O&M in practise are shown. Four articles describe O&M systems in Africa and one paper focuses on public toilets in Austria. Especially the contributions from Kenya, Uganda and Malawi have one thing in common: They are still “insular projects”, which are at the very beginning to be taken up.
The main purpose of this paper is to identify possible challenges that can severely affect the selection and implementation of successful operation and maintenance strategies. For this a case study from AVSI’s work in Northern Uganda is used. This selected area of Northern Uganda is affected by the consequences of a twenty years civil war. Recommendations on how to implement good operation and maintenance strategies are given.
