Title: Ecological Sanitation and its Role in Society
Ecological sanitation (eco-san) is defined as the system that prevents disease and promotes health; protects the environment and conserves water; recovers and recycles nutrients and organic matter to soil. The basic principle of eco-san is to close the loop between sanitation and agriculture. Closing the loop means making availability of nutrients that may have been lost if urine and fecal matter is buried and never reused. The area where there is no proper drainage facility, where water scarcity problem is major problem and where infertility of soil hinders production, ecological sanitation would be a good option. The urine and excreta is no more waste but is used as a potential resource for agriculture. So, the system is also called as productive sanitation due to its role on production. The research done in past in countries of Africa and Asia showed the positive impact of ecological sanitation in reducing diseases and reducing poverty. Although the cases might be found that the people hesitate to work with owns urine and excreta. But the knowledge on eco-san manure and its role on productivity helped to reduce their hesitation to work with eco-san manure. For my research/study during Kyoto University, the rural village of Nepal was chosen because of all above circumstances and the need to find out the solution to these problems in the reason. The eco-san toilet was installed to spread its benefits to the local people.
