Clean Communities: A practical guide to building and maintaining toilets in the Pacific

Clean Communities - A practical guide

A simple, easy-to-use guide for the construction and maintenance of toilets in Pacific communities.

Designed for use by community groups, NGOs, government, private enterprises or donor bodies, this guide contains information on the importance of toilets for preventing the spread of disease, the variety of toilet designs and their construction, and promotional material.

Readers with a basic skill set and previous construction experience are guided through the process of assessing the community’s toilet needs, acquiring materials, and designing and building, with the aid of checklists, diagrams and photographs. As well as providing practical instruction on toilet construction, the Clean Communities guidebook raises awareness of other key hygiene behaviours, such as handwashing with soap.
