This is a great proposal and has a particularly clear implementation plan. The proposal is thoughtful, feasible, and has the potential to scale to other cities and communities.

Good luck during the voting period!

Thank your for submitting a proposal into the Climate CoLab.

The Judges thought this was a very strong and inspirational proposal, and believe, with a little work, it could be a very strong presentation.

In your revisions, we would like to discuss what kind of technology you intend to use to capture the human waste. There are many different models out there and we would like to see a drawing and discussion of what ECOSAN intends to use.

Your discussion of the communities and the number of people impacted is well thought out and very clear. We were especially taken with the idea of using ECOSAN at the household level.

However, we would also need to see how the waste will be handled when using it as fertilizer -- there are many important regulations regarding the usage of human waste as fertilizer.

Finally, we would also like to see you address what we in the "waste world" informally call the "ick factor." Is this population comfortable using their own waste to grow food, and if so, why are they comfortable? Most of the communities where we work simply cannot get beyond the "ick factor."
