Due to its lush cloud forests, many people in Monteverde, Costa Rica believe the region has an abundance of water. However, climate change and tourism are altering the region’s water availability. Our sponsor, CORCLIMA, is dedicated to conserving water and reducing carbon emissions by using innovative technologies. The goal of this project was to aid CORCLIMA’s water conservation efforts in Monteverde by determining the best design options for composting toilets and creating informational materials for use within the community. We surveyed community perceptions on composting toilets and visited various models installed throughout the region. With our findings and deliverables, CORCLIMA will be able to start a conversation about water scarcity and the benefits of composting toilets.
