In this research project, the focus was to provide the Bomberos of Costa Rica with methods to improve the overall quality of their disaster relief camps, through enhancing water treatment, disposal processes and hygiene practices. We utilized interviews with key stakeholders to understand the main concerns, which were simplicity, portability and cost. When completed, we achieved innovation in the areas of water treatment, waste water disposal, water harvesting and hygiene practices, all in compliance with Costa Rican laws and regulations.
