Project: Opportunities and barriers for recovering value from faecal sludge in African cities

Funding Acknowledgements: PhD funded by NERC via the IAPETUS Doctoral Training Partnership. Host institutions are The University of Stirling and Durham University.

Sustainable management of faecal sludge from pit latrines and other on-site sanitation systems in sub-Saharan Africa constitutes a serious public and environmental health challenge. This project will explore opportunities and barriers for recovering value from faecal sludge using the city of Blantyre, Malawi, as a case study.
