Thank-you to our community partners. Without them, the project would be impossible.Feedback. If time:MrSokSueng: "Good Sanitation means good MrSokSovann: "My floating toilet is good for my health, is more convenient and private"Mrs Yan Yeoun: "Clean water is important for our health"Ms Lai-Im: Community Liaison Officer"Clean water is the most important thing to our community"PichVongsa: Principle from the PhatSanday Secondary School"Our community wastes money on health care, that we wouldn't need to spend if the water was clean"MrHakleyKe: Teacher at the Secondary School Community Liaison Officer"I want everyone in the community to have a toilet.”
I would like to come at the end and make a brief comment to advocate for small funding packages over time that allow innovative development without high expenditure. That these can then make large scale processes possible in challenging environments.
Since 2008, Engineers Without Border Australia has been working with Live & Learn Environmental Education Cambodia, partners and the communities of Phat Sanday to assess, research, develop and trial a sanitation response for communities living in one of these challenging environments, the Floating Communities of the Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia.

Tonle Sap Floating Toilet Project<br />Use this slide as a template for your presentation<br />Presentation Tmplate<br />
Design Approach<br />Goal was to develop sanitation options that are: <br />culturally appropriate, affordable, sustainable<br />Design requirements:<br />local production, local materials and expertise <br />Holistic considerations from the start:<br />gendered, considered whole of cycle, always working towards self-sustaining market delivery<br />
3 Hole Urine Diversion Desiccation Toilet (UDDT)<br />Faeces collected dry in bucket, ash added, stored for 6 months<br />Urine diverted<br />Wash water diverted - from menstrual hygiene and anal cleansing<br />Consumables: soap, ash, water<br />Materials: cement, bowl from market as cover, pvc pipe, reused buckets, wood or metal frame constructed locally<br />Cost: ~35USD<br />
Floating Community Waste Management Station<br />Built as a demonstration of what is achievable within the Tonle Sap Environment.<br />Designed to:<br />Act as platform for trials of several different treatment methods.<br />Integrate with energy and food production.<br />Desiccation and storage waste treatment process currently under trial.<br />
End Goal: Sustainable sanitation for floating communities(and other communities in Challenging Environments)<br />Community lead design and trial<br />UDDT using local materials and methods<br />Waste treatment linked with energy and food production<br />Commercially sustainable<br /><br /><br />Under trial<br />Foundation in place<br />
