Ideas for India and Live Mint do sanitation series
— Blog Post — 1 min read
Ideas for India and Live Mint are publishing a series on sanitation and r.i.c.e. work. You can see Diane's piece on the conclusions from the SQUAT and qualitative "switching" study about why so many people in India defecate in the open here in Ideas for India, and here in Mint. You can see Michael Geruso's piece on the effects of sanitation on child mortality here in Ideas for India and here in Mint. Dean's pieces on the unique challenges for sanitation policy in India are coming out tomorrow.
I used a picture of a latrine pit for this post because it reminds us that when we're thinking about rural sanitation solutions for north India, we need to remember that the pit is the part of the latrine that is most important to people in villages!
