This is a report of recent research carried out by Bunda Agricultural College, in partnership with WaterAid and the SHARE Research Consortium. The research was carried out from August 2011 to March 2012, and aimed to set some building blocks towards scaling up ecological sanitation in urban and rural Malawi. The purpose was to draw lessons from households’ experiences of eco-san toilets promotion so as to understand what factors were appealing or deterred them from adopting the technologies. The goal of informing future standards and guideline developments for the safe management of ecological sanitation and human compost in Malawi was also in the realm of the research.
