Curious to know what has been the Mongolians opinions on composting humanure?
Little I know of their culture, they aren't tillers of the soil. The nomads still rely on their herds and pasture is treasured above farmland.
Digging in the Earth even extends to using large stones to secure ends of ropes on gers (yurts)instead of using a stake pounded into the ground. Those living in Ulan Bataar and other cities must be interested in a system that doesn't use water.
Thanks.

I am back in Mongolia, May, 2006, and have created this new topic so people can find the Mongolia information. I can't find where it had been previously posted on this message board, although there is more information at https://www.joseph-jenkins.com/mongolia.html for anyone who is interested.

Our goal at present is to establish pilot household backyard humanure compost toilet systems in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia's capital and largest city (UB) and in Erdenet, the 2nd largest city.

I will post more information on this site as it becomes available.

I have posted some new photos of my latest excursion to Mongolia (May, 2006). During phase two of this project, we built some humanure toilets and established some pilot project groups.
