A ‘two-track’ approach has been adopted in order to tackle the problems of sanitation and waste management in the town of Adjumani, Northern Uganda. The first track consists of a sludge treatment facility for the disposal of sludge from existing toilet systems (pit latrines and septic tanks). The second track consists of the promotion of ecological sanitation toilets and wetland systems and of a small composting facility where the solids from ecosan toilets can be disposed of. A sanitation levy on the tariff for piped water is used as a financing tool.
