This document reports the findings from Phase 1 (May - August 1992) of an Overseas Development Administration funded project concerning on-plot sanitation in low income areas of urban Africa and Asia. This document presents the results of a literature review and postal survey. More than three hundred documents were examined in the review and material relevant to on-plot urban sanitation has been summarized in sections dealing with technical, health and social and management issues.
