4 Background Information
Inadequate sanitation is a major cause of preventable illnesses in children around the world. According to UNICEF, diarrhea alone causes over 1.6 million deaths in children under 5. These illnesses can easily be prevented by improving sanitation. However, cost is a major barrier limiting the adoption of sanitation in Haiti. Peter Morgan’s Arborloo is a simple latrine built over a small pit, which when filled is then moved to a new pit location. The old, filled pit then has vegetation planted on top of it, such as a fruit tree.

5 P14415 Problem Statement Current State
Difficult to adopt in rural areas due to high cost and transportation difficulties Desired State A low cost, portable, easy to assemble, and aesthetically pleasing arborloo base that can be financed in parts Project Goals Analyze the current arborloo design to find opportunities to incorporate plastic Help improve sanitation in Haiti Constraints System must be financeable in parts Design must incorporate plastic Design must be compliant with the skills and tools available to the intended population
