The SOIL team is comprised of experts in civil engineering, public health, ecology, agronomy, education/community outreach, disaster risk reduction, project design, logistical frameworks, and donor reporting.

Our consultancy services include, but are not limited to:

  • EcoSan Feasibility Studies
  • Technical reviews of EcoSan projects
    • Environmental Appraisals
    • Engineering Assessments of infrastructure (toilets, composting facilities, logistical support frameworks)
    • IEC activities/document review
    • Mid-term and final evaluation of EcoSan projects
