Designing a Sanitation System - Lesson Plan (LDC)

This lesson introduces the factors that affect the design and selection of sanitation technologies. Participants are given their Sanitation System Design Workbooks, which they will use during the workshop to design a sanitation system appropriate for their project. The focus is on designing the latrine components of the sanitation system, and will briefly address sludge treatment, use and disposal.
