Project Details & Results The site to house the infrastructure project is at the market of Kiota. This site does not have modern toilets to allow traders, travelers and residents to relieve themselves in secrecy. Indeed, as elsewhere, people do not have a modern system of sanitation for good hygiene. The excreta disposal is not fully returned due to customs. Sanitation is often linked to beliefs and cultural traditions. In addition to these beliefs, people are in situations of permanent instability. We also notice that a weakness in the sanitation service is, to provide education for people and to popularie the use of latrines. In general, environmental sanitation and waste disposal in sanitary conditions to protect against diseases and to improve the environment for living are the prerequisites for any improvement of rural living. As part of this project, the significant effects in terms of the environment are: - Percentage of travelers and merchants who use latrines; - Changes in the improvement rate in the management of the living environment; - Percentage of recipients who are actively involved in actions for raising the awareness.

In economic and social terms, the risks of waterborne diseases (cholera) are discarded. Obtaining community latrines means primarily to improve the living conditions of the community. Unpleasant odors will disappear. Healthy expenses will also decrease. The implementation of the project will promote an individual and collective behavior change, cooperation within and outside of the villages and it will promote a redistribution of roles at the local level. The project is relevant in the context of the environment program and living conditions contained in the National Environmental Plan for Sustainable Development (PNEDD), developed and validated in 1998 and adopted as national policy by the Government in the April of 2000.
