Ecosan Curriculum 2.3 Print
ecosan_curriculum.jpgNew special edition for India

A new update of the much valued ecosan curriculum is now available, containing a comprehensive collection of the most topical publications on ecosan in digital form. The ecosan curriculum was created in order to compile the large amount of information in a structured and comprehensive way. Up to now, it is the most comprehensive work on ecosan in digital form. The structure of the CD allows it to integrate a large share of the papers, books, articles and presentations on ecosan.

The CD itself is divided into six different modules, the very first one being the summary and overview of Modules 1 to 5. Module 1 gives an overview of how sanitation is related to the Millennium Development goals. Module 2 explains the concept of ecosan in depth. Module 3 then deals with the technological aspects of ecosan, while module 4 focuses on management, implementation and operation. The final module shows ecosan projects all over the world.

All modules are available as PowerPoint presentations and as tutorial modules for self study. In this way, the CD is useful both to those who only want to get an overview of ecosan, as well as those who are looking at a specific aspect of ecosan, and those who want to thoroughly study the subject with all its various aspects and implications.

The first version of the curriculum from 2006 was completely updated and improved in 2007. It contains additional background material, for example all four volumes of the WHO Guidelines for the safe use of excreta and grey water. Furthermore, a new module in institutional aspects was created, and all modules were updated with the newest open-source material on ecological sanitation. In 2008, a slightly updated version “ecosan curriculum 2.3 India” with additional technical data sheets on Indian projects, and information flyers in local Indian languages was complied.
