Sanitation includes all four of these technical and non-technical systems: Excreta management systems, wastewater management systems (included here are wastewater treatment plants), solid waste management systems as well as drainage systems for rainwater, also called stormwater drainage. Participatory, community-based approaches to hygiene promotion allow organizations and governments to work with communities to arrive at sustainable solutions to development problems. We would like to know some of the sanitation approaches that we are well conversant with? Leave your comments in the reply section.
