Sanitation alternatives are presented in terms of « technical » efficiency but also, always, in the light of cultural acceptability.
The final part of the book deals which the practical, financial and organizational considerations of obtaining or upgrading sanitation provision, the emphasis being firmly on the community and its needs and preferences. (R. A.).
