There have been several attempts in the past to document the technical details of the different types of toilets found in rural Bhutan. However, these efforts were all focused in one type of toilet or the other. This handbook has attempted to gather together in one place all the information needed for deciding which is the most suitable toilet technology for the various rural household settings found in Bhutan. All the information provided in this handbook is based on the field experiences in the RSAHP programme area. The handbook also tries to provide the technical details along with graphic illustrations of the different types of toilet. However, this manual is not to be taken as “one size fits all” since the information gathered herein may not be suitable for some situation and might need to be adapted accordingly. This handbook contains details about 11 different types of toilets which can be opted for depending on the different situation in rural Bhutan. [authors abstract]
