Toilets are commonly not viewed as being attractive or interesting. They are normally designed only to serve a certain purpose - a function called excreta management, which is already unattractive by itself. In combination with the need to develop low-cost solutions, design is often neglected. In East-Africa urine diverting dry toilets (UDDTs) are constructed since almost 15 years. But still most of the UDDTs have a similar design with very view adaptations. The paper presents different designs of UDDTs which are based on experiences from more than 10 years of sanitation system planning in the region.
