As part of the response to the Rohingya refugee crisis in Bangladesh, Oxfam has been supporting the implementation of water and sanitation infrastructure in the refugee camps. The huge influx of people, challenging environmental factors and the small space have led to innovate approaches being taken to address the quantities of faecal sludge needing treatment. In this podcast Oxfam’s John Allen and Salahuddin Ahmmed discuss what approaches are being used and how current innovations have overcome the challenges faced there.Photo: An Oxfam latrine used by four families in Unchiprang camp for Rohingya refugees, Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.
