Content - Summary

This library entry contains background documents for a grant that Nick Alcock is leading and which is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.


Test the use of Public Private Partnerships to ultimately improve the delivery of sanitation service to low income households through an incentivized emptying and transport contract and an operating contract for processing of waste (excreta) to develop valuable products.

Objective 1: Implementation of a cost effective faecal waste removal system for the estimated 80 000 households in rural areas surrounding the city in order to ultimately improve health and safety of the residents. In meeting this objective, success will be removal of all faecal matter from the UD toilets and the empowering of a number of local teams under the managing contract to undertake the work independently and sustainably in the second cycle beginning in year three of operations.
Objective 2: Development and operation of a cost effective faecal waste processing plant using Black Soldier Fly (BSF) Technology through a partnership (using an operating contract) with a private sector organization. Success in meeting this objective will be the reduction in costs of processing or disposal of faecal waste through the sale of value added products by the BSF business partner.
