Title: Communities’ knowledge on termite-proofing wood used in latrines construction
What to do: The community told us that before putting the wood in the latrine hole, they
would put tobacco in water for a day, then mixed the solution with clay and put the clay
mixture on the wood. As a result, termites cannot destroy that wood and the latrine can be
used for a long time.
This is an example of the rich knowledge that the community possesses. We advise other
colleagues to exchange more with community actors and to assume the position of
someone who wants to learn.
