Improper solid and human waste management endangers rural Namibian farming communities. Our goal was to conduct a pilot study in an effort to reduce the effects of waste in the Odendaal Farms of southern Namibia. Through interviews, community meetings, waste audits, and the construction of a centralized solid waste collection center, we eliminated the need for the burning of waste at the household level. In addition, we evaluated seventeen of the nineteen Otji dry sanitation toilets installed in 2011. We proposed a set of recommendations that the DRFN, and other organizations, can use to further improve waste management in rural Namibia. -
