To establish effective and consistent sludge management services, ensuring the city’s sustainably healthy environment and its people health.
The municipality of Faridpur have elaborated its vision for a “sustainable and safe city-wide faecal sludge management system serving all municipal residents and institutions in Faridpur municipality by 2025”, to achieve sustainable FSM component of the City Development Plan. This vision involves addressing the three systemic problems that create binding constraints on the emergence of scaled, environmentally safe, and financially sustainable private sector-led functions in the faecal sludge system. This project proposes to implement a set of activities that will further elaborate the investment needs of the municipality and support it to access investment financing, while taking initial steps to pilot, and test the economics of scale-up of solutions to the systemic problems identified.
A multi-stakeholder Steering Committee (SC) will be formed to regulate and facilitate the entire faecal sludge management service at city level. And the project will be organised in terms of a 6 month inception phase, 18 months of piloting, and 12 months of testing the economics of scaling up.
