Now that we know how to collect urine and faecal matter, and for a great deal how to treat it, we move to the chapters on how to reuse it in agriculture. Creating a demand is always a good motivation for keeping systems up and running. That can be done through creating a demand for for clean and safe toilets, but also by creating a demand for fertilisers.

By creating a demand from the agricultural side, there will be more motivation to implement sustainable sanitation - while other needs are met as well.
