This paper examines the extent of participation and impact of private small scale independent providers and community based organizations in the coverage, management and commercial (re)use of human waste in Latin America. Women participate to some extent, but a systematic approach to a more equitable gender-distribution of burdens and benefits is still to be explored. Two cases concern replication of the dry latrine technology in Mexico and women participating in operation and maintenance of simplified sewerage schemes.
