Several major donors are now looking for “value for money” in all WaSH emergency programmes. Therefore in order to justify the cost of Oxfam’s selected latrine design not only should initial construction cost be considered but also the on- going operation & maintenance costs to ensure that we are providing “value for money” in phase of emergency and the long run.
In saying this, value for money should not only look at construction, operation and maintenance costs as many other aspects such as suitability of design for each phase of an emergency, soil conditions, environmental factors and acceptability of design must also be a major factor.
This document hopes to outline various basic costs of a selection of design options as well as calculate operation and maintenance costs over a period of 2 years. In addition to this the document will also look at the suitability of those selected designs during the same time frame.
