conference contributionposted on 2018-02-12, 15:11 authored by Lucy Stevens, Noemie De La Brosse, J. Casey
In this paper we use Practical Action’s framework of Technology Justice and apply it to faecal sludge management. The framework analyses FSM from the perspectives of access, use and innovation. It encourages a wider systems-based approach to the issue. We illustrate the ideas by discussing how we are trying to create long-lasting change through a positive enabling environment in Bangladesh which encompasses empowerment of informal pit emptiers, engagement with Municipalities, and work to establish a new set of national guidelines.
