Red Cross Report from Haiti recommending biogas (July 2010)
January 29, 2011
In the top ten messages of a special report from Haiti in July 2010 ” From sustaining lives to sustainable solutions: the challenge of sanitation – 6 months on” the Red Cross is urging the international community to take sanitation seriously and to “recognize sanitation as one of the absolute priorities in Haiti’s reconstruction, and to ensure that sufficient resources are devoted to it.”
They are also calling for innovative solutions for future sanitation provision: “…research is needed into potential solutions such as small bore sewerage, large-scale composting of waste, or establishing biogas production.”
The Red Cross is now researching with expert partners about different ways of including biogas into its shelter modules.
