Abstract

The informal settlement of Monwabisi Park in Cape Town, South Africa lacks water and sanitation services. The lack of proper facilities has led to the spread of diarrheal diseases and prevented further redevelopment in the area. The goal of this project was to design a facility with sanitation services and clean water access. The design, which includes dry composting toilets, washing stations, and greywater management, is intended for modification and replication throughout the park.
