Mymensingh (2009, GTZ)

With this situation in mind, the German GTZ (now GIZ – Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbei) decided to try Peepoo in 2009, as a potential sanitation solution for urban slums in Bangladesh. The try focused on Peepoo user acceptance as a sanitation solution and also the use of fertiliser from Peepoos in a Muslim context. Bangladesh is a relatively conservative society with a culture largely based on Muslim foundations.

Following the try, GTZ concluded that Peepoo represents a feasible solution to one of the world’s greatest challenges: providing sustainable sanitation to millions of urban slum dwellers. Based on the positive findings of the study, and challenges that need to be accounted for, GTZ found a number of ways in which the development of a sustainable sanitation system based on Peepoo can be adopted.
