The SanMark CITY is designed to explore the critical gap that currently exists in introducing, adapting, and sustaining affordable on-site sanitation technologies on a large scale.
The potentiality of four on-site composting toilet technologies will be explored under SanMark CITY for slums in urban Bangladesh. These are- Tiger Toilet, Sun-Mar, Enbiolet, and the Biofill. Starting with a Human Centered Design (HCD) approach to develop appropriate designs for these four toilet technologies and by demonstrating their technical potential, SanMark CITY will additionally develop production and business models engaging national level private sector agencies. Also, the learning will be disseminated at regional level informing key stakeholders in the public, private and non-government sectors on how best to support the diffusion of such technologies for maximum impact.
