World’s sanitation problems cannot be solved only by building water latrines and sewerage systems. The building and maintenance costs are too high and furthermore this infrastructure cannot ensure clean environment. In a case of inadequate waste water treatment even more severe health and environmental risks than the use of bushes for defecation pu.....[read full text]
