This compendium helps identify and evaluate sanitation options in the context of the Household Centered Environmental Sanitation (HCES) planning approach. It is aimed at engineers, planners and other professionals who are familiar with sanitation technologies and processes.

The compendium is divided into two parts. Part 1 describes different system configurations for a variety of contexts. Part 2 consists of 52 different Technology Information Sheets, which describe the main advantages, disadvantages, applications and the appropriateness of the technologies required to build a comprehensive sanitation system. Each Technology Information Sheet is complemented by a descriptive illustration
