Summary of two ecological sanitation options used in Uganda: the simplest and most widely used is the “Arborloo”, which is popular particularly among women because it is relatively simple to construct; and a more durable structure called the “Fossa alterna”. The construction cost of these two design types is comparable to that of upgrading a traditional pit latrine. The EcoSan toilets generate valuable compost allowing for the possibility of cost recovery for households in the long term.
