This series of manuals was initiated in 2003 when the EcoSan Club was contracted to carry out training workshops for hospital and health centre technical staff in Uganda. This particular manual deals with two types of dry toilets – urine diversion and composting. The motivation behind this choice of topic was that even though, in particular in Uganda, a substantial number of dry toilets are being constructed but still an unnecessary high percentage of those toilets are not functioning properly. In many cases, apart from improper use, the reason can be found in simple mistakes in design and construction. In this sense this manual aims at people designing, constructing and operating dry toilets. It summarises own experience with dry toilets as well as experiences from other organisations and individuals involved in dry toilet design, construction and use.
