By emphasizing the reuse potential with EcoSan, CREPA has managed to mobilize funds from the agriculture sector:
• Productive Sanitation in Aguié, Niger, with IFAD support. Low cost technologies for human fertilizer production and adapted PHAST tools on the fertilizer potential of sanitized urine and feces;
• ECOSAN_UE II in Kourittenga, Burkina Faso, with EU food security funds. Scaling up EcoSan in 30 villages, with focus on participative experimentation and strong involvement of agriculture extension officers;
• Agro industrials in Côte d’Ivoire. SAPH, an agro industrial specializing on rubber tree plantations, is contracting CREPA to implement EcoSan in the workers’ villages, to improve living conditions while diminishing the use of chemical fertilizer in the rubber tree nurseries.
Sanitation in rural areas could be driven by the agricultural sector. With food security being a world wide problem, productive sanitation can provide part of the answer. Tapping into agriculture funds should be a high priority for the dry toilet promoters.
