This report presents the current state of the art of urine-diverting systems, with focus on Swedish experiences of urine diversion. The intention is to inspire decision- and policy-makers to consider urine diversion for sanitation interventions aimed at meeting the sanitation target of the Millennium Development Goals. Section 1 describes how urine diversion can help meet multiple Millennium Development Goals. Going to scale with urine diversion is also discussed in this section.
Another target group for this report is municipal engineers worldwide, whom we want to enthuse to consider urine diversion as an alternative/ complement to currently used sanitation options. Section 2 gives examples of urine diversion in different Swedish settings, both from a technical and organizational point of view. Moreover, different aspects of urine diversion from user to field are described in this section.
