Toilets for all by 2025

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Thu Nov 16, 2017 1:12 pm

For the time being, they must be shared toilets and not household toilets based on the numbers they give here, but it's a start.

Target seeks to provide toilets for all by 2025
16 November 2017
The government has committed to eradicating the practice of open defecation by 2025, according to a Ministry of Rural Development statement published yesterday. The statement said more than half of rural areas in the country now have access to proper sanitation, compared to only 11 percent in 1990.

Cambodia yesterday played host to an international conference on community-led sanitation, attended by 100 experts from Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Indonesia, Timor Leste and India.

Chreay Pom, director of the department of rural health care at the Ministry of Rural Development, said community-led sanitation has contributed significantly to reducing open defecation. “Cambodia needs continuing efforts to achieve our rural sanitation and hygiene vision so we can declare the nation open defecation free by 2025,” he said.

According to a Ministry of Rural development report, the government supported rural communities to build 520 new toilets in Kampong Cham, Kandal, Svay Rieng and Oddar Meanchey in the first nine months of the year, plus provided 270 new toilets to people in rural areas in Sihanoukville and Svay Rieng provinces.

Toilet makers becoming flush
Tue, 21 November 2017
Efforts to include the private sector in the expansion of sanitary practices in the Kingdom have helped to build a toilet industry that has seen the numbers of latrines in rural communities surge, but the industry still needs a push to increase the profitability for local businesses.

Bun Thoeun, a toilet supplier and construction worker in Dambae district in Tbong Khmum province, began selling and installing toilet packages in 2014. While he tries to keep prices relatively low, he has been able to make considerable profits from toilet-installation services.
“While I charge a service fee [and make a profit], I install toilets to promote healthy living,” he said. “I provide a 1.3-metre latrine for $200 and a 2.2-metre latrine for $650.”
