This paper intended to explore the sanitation situation of the rural Ethiopia and evaluate how the existing situation can welcome dry toilet as an alternative for sanitation. The study was based on the field survey, literature reviews and field observation during November-December of 2012 and 2013, and June 2014. The survey found out that a lot has been done in the area, but it is too early to declare that the question is solved. In terms of DT sanitation policy and promotion intra-ministerial collaborations are improving. Moreover, the traditional use of night soil for the crops that are eaten cooked is an interesting part to be taken into account when considering dry toilet.
