Mexico has been one of the world leaders in dry sanitation projects. However, when attempted on a relatively large scale, implementation continues to be hampered by inadequate community education, training, and participation in decision-making.
As part of a larger effort to address this problem, Espacio de Salud, A.C. (ESAC) launched a two and a half year project aimed at providing information and skills to communities so that actors involved on the community level could become self-sufficient in sanitation services and a resource for information, skills and hardware for the region. To increase the impact of this project, ESAC simultaneously worked in several regions of Mexico.
The long-term goals of the project included:
The project goal was to have the involved communities able to continue education, construction, and oversight for new dry toilet projects after ESAC's involvement ended.
