This technical do-it-yourself guide published by the Global Water Initiative (GWI) provides step-by-step instruction on building simple pit latrines. It was designed for use at the individual household level to assist families in West Africa who have already decided to build their own latrines. The goal of the guide is to ensure that, as a result of users’ total satisfaction with the quality of their new latrines, they will permanently abandon the practice of open defecation.
