The odourless and hygienic Ventilated Improved Pit latrine has improved the lives of tens of millions of Africans. In this episode, Dr Peter Morgan ? a pioneer in the water, sanitation and hygiene sector for the last four decades ? describes how he designed this toilet and how it was rolled out in his adopted country Zimbabwe. He also describes his other innovations, including using human waste as compost at a primary school ? the subject of a recent presentation at the Water, Engineering and Development Centre conference at Loughborough University.
