Access to proper sanitation is a basic step towards sustainable development, and crucial to the health of any community. 2.6 billion people in the world lack access to any excreta disposal facility (UNICEF, 2005), with only 49% of the rural population of Latin America and the Caribbean having sanitation coverage (WHO/UNICEF, 2000). As a Peace Corps volunteer living in the rural Ngobe-Bugle Indigenous Territory (Comarca Ngobe-Bugle) of Panama, the author of this report assisted in the implementation of several compost latrine projects.
