Abstract

For over more than 30 years, Korean public toilets have been rapidly improving in terms of availability, accessibility, affordability, accommodation, and acceptability. In addition, they have been proving to be environmentally-friendly. This is the result of joint efforts between the central government, local municipalities and civil society to change the perception and behavior of providers and users of public toilets. The improvement process of the Korean public toilets can be largely divided into three periods based on the five aforementioned categories and the related specifications. The 1980’s saw such drastic changes and great overall improvements in toilets, it was to be called the “Toilet Revolution”. (The rest omitted)
