First days on Zambian sanitation field trip

I’m on day 2 of our field trip to Lusaka, Zambia. Yesterday, we met with colleagues at the University of Zambia to discuss our joint experiments on the Transforming Waste Project ( We also visited the site of the Water Trust / Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor / BORDA  / WASAZA biodigester at Kanyama district in Lusaka.

Today, we accompanied the pit emptying team to a household, where we observed the emptying of a pit latrine and the transport of faecal solids back to the digester for treatment.

I did get to push one of the carts of shit back to the digester. More pictures and blogging to follow later this week.
