Groundwater contamination poses a risk to Namibian farming communities. Our goal was to analyze and improve water quality and sanitation on Odendaal farms in southern Namibia. Through interviews with farmers, meetings with local experts, and water tests, we established a baseline with social and environmental components. In collaboration with communities, we organized an approach to improve water and sanitation, and piloted a dry sanitation system. We created recommendations for the Desert Research Foundation to allow for continued improvement.
