To produce a publication that will provide researchers and practitioners worldwide with consistent and comparable faecal sludge field and laboratory methods
The importance of understanding the characteristics of faecal sludge is emphasised as an emerging issue of Faecal Sludge Management. The lack of standardisation complicates the transfer of knowledge and data between different regions and institutions as the results may not be comparable. The current situation raises the need to establish common methods and procedures adapted to faecal sludge through a collaboration between organisations with most extensive experience in this field.
