Abstract: As emergency scenarios increase in number and complexity, standard sanitation solutions are not always able to meet the demand of populations or environmental situations. Alternative sanitation systems provide a viable way forward yet many of these technologies, such as urine diversion, are being resisted by humanitarian engineers who typically cite the inability of users to adapt behaviours. This paper reports research in to this situation, drawing on experiences from the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
