This study argues that the issue of sanitation and the solutions to it extends far beyond its mere access; any envisioned improvement in sanitation technology must strive to rectify the shortcomings in centralized wastewater treatment wherein end-of-pipe technologies have been favored. Illustrates that simultaneous provisioning of ‘access’ and ‘improved sanitation’ through urine diversion and resource recovery can help create multiple-win scenarios in developing countries especially in terms of health, food and water security.
