This paper presents a comprehensive conceptualisation of how climate change could be considered in urban sanitation policy and programming.
Given the urban sanitation crisis facing many cities in developing countries, consideration of climate change can seem like an unwanted distraction from the immediate problems at hand (Bartram, et al., 2017). Climate hazards are often perceived as …
WOMENA SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Prevalence rates of 20-30% or more have been documented in both high-, middle- and low-income countries. Many infections are asymptomatic, meaning that those who have the infection do not know.
Menstruation is a normal, physiologic …

The risk of developing Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) for women using Menstrual Cups (MCs) is very
In 1979-80, large numbers of menstruation-associated cases of TSS appeared. In the US alone, more
than 1000 cases were reported in 1980. An ultra-absorbent tampon (Rely) was identified as a main
reason for this spike, but many other products were also associated, for …

Useful data is important for effective decision making. In 2017, the World Bank reported that poor data has led to an ineffective allocation of resources across the sanitation sector. The current data gap is also preventing the sanitation sector from tracking its progress in providing sanitation for people living in cities. This challenge is not insurmountable. A sector-wide response needs to …

Fernandez-Martinez, L., Furlong, C. (2016)
After exploring the potential of SFDs in predicting the impact of sanitation investment projects across the sanitation service chain, a new feature was developed called “trend graphs” or “Scenario SFDs”. It allows visualizing different scenarios and giving an outlook on what the situation could look like in the future and what could be achieved through specific investments or activities. …

Which, and how many, products are used? This FAQ focuses on disposable or reusable products, which
are commercially available. Little information is available on traditional or homemade products. Estimates
of how many products are used differ widely. Some estimates from High-Income Countries indicate around
30 products per cycle (390 annually), …

Inspired by the SFD, the Resource Value Mapping tool (REVAMP) is being developed at Stockholm Environment Initiative (SEI) for quickly estimating, visualizing and valuing the resources that could be recovered from a city’s organic waste streams: sewage sludge, faecal sludge, and food and other organic solid waste.
There is increasing interest in the concept of the circular economy and …
Wendland, C., Jorritsma, F., Wienpahl, I., Herbst, S. (2019)
In rural areas of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA) without reliable piped water supply, the conventional school sanitation system – the pit latrine – is leading to hygienic and environmental problems. Urine diverting dry toilets (UDDT) have been demonstrated to be an alternative, ecological sanitation solution for rural schools of the EECCA region. This study compares the …

Andy Peal (2018)
Wherefrom do we get data on the sanitation status in cities and countries and what qualities do these data need to have to be relevant either for JMP reporting or to be used in developing an SFD for a given city?
Against this background, the comparison of methods for excreta flow analysis gives an overview on the focus, purpose, methodologies, outputs and definitions of two approaches. On the …

Based on available evidence, expert opinion, recommendations from health authorities as well as
from manufacturers, there is little scientific evidence to indicate that menstrual cup use
increases the risk of IUD expulsion, and therefore little reason for IUD users to exclude using
an MC. In the spirit of precaution, and until better evidence is available, possible …
