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.
Waterless sanitation systems with urine diversion are considered as a suitable solution for East African cities. To successfully implement the sanitation system, functioning organisational structures and a sustainable financial strategy are needed. For waterless sanitation systems other institutional settings are needed than for sewer-based sanitation systems. In waterless sanitation systems the logistics and organisational structures needed to collect the sanitation products are similar to solid waste management. Based on an analysis of sanitation and solid waste management in Austria, organisational structure and a financial strategy for implementing a waterless sanitation system are developed. As part of the financial considerations also the possible value chain is described.
