Despite models being developed in various parts of the country, EcoSan has not succeeded in emerging as a popular model for the communities. The reasons vary between acceptability, affordability of the model and usage of proper IEC/BCC to convince the communities. The success of EcoSan has been confined to demonstrations and experiments. This paper deals with the experiences of WaterAid in developing EcoSan as a sustainable model which can cater to the needs of the larger populations. It explains, how through the innovations in the model, IEC and demonstrations, EcoSan can be made culturally and economically acceptable to the community.
