This paper aims to derive a strategy for sustainable implementation of a waterless sanitation system with urine diversion under East African conditions that is based on an analysis of the situation in Austria.
This article presents the main points of a business plan developed for a community-based resources-oriented human waste management system in Nakuru, Kenya. In this system a community-based organisation (CBO) is working as a small business engaged in the collection, transportation and treatment of separated excreta from Urine Diverting Dry Toilets (UDDTs). To verify the potential profitability of the system a projected income statement, included in a detailed business plan, was developed. In order to identify the related costs a case study was conducted in Nakuru in November 2009. The detailed financial projections indicate that profitability can be reached by year four of operation.
