Lessons from the field: PHAST (Participatory Health And Sanitation Transformation), South Africa

Publication year: 

Sanitation ladders and matrices can be used to expose villagers to a range of sanitation options. In this case study villagers were only aware of two sanitation technology options both of which were inappropriate given the hard rock conditions and limited water. Using these tools local perceptions on the advantages and disdvantages of each option were solicited and a possible demonstration toilet option was suggested, as part of an introductory phase of a sanitation project.
