It has been recognized by the UN as safe sanitation.


It is a proven and effective solution for urban areas globally.


It does not utilize critical resources like water.


It is relevant in the context of climate change and disaster risk.

Our work contributes to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
