Content - Summary

This library entry contains background documents for a grant that is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and which is led by Uttam Kumar Saha and Rafiul Islam.

Short description of the project:

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. The proposed solutions to be supported in this project are:

- Setting standards of containments for monitoring the construction and uses and capacity building of local masons for construction of standard containments to improve the containment standards throughout the city;
- Forming public private partnership for collection and transportation with sweeper groups (informal pit emptiers group) by sustainably building capacity of collection and transportation services;
- Promotion of safe disposal at the new treatment plant (planted drying bed and unplanted drying bed) instead of disposing of it unsafely in the environment;
- Treatment infrastructure development and public private partnership for treatment plant operation by creating an operational treatment plant by constructing the plant and forming SLA (service level agreements) with private treatment Plant Operator (TPO) to run the plant; and
- Formation of a coherent national regulatory framework and guidelines for faecal sludge management, combined with the current limited national capacity and devising a sectoral coordination mechanism to coordinate the sector stakeholders by establishing a sludge network.

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.

Goal(s):

To establish effective and consistent sludge management services across the whole of Faridpur City sustaining itself through results-based public private partnerships, ensuring the city’s sustainably healthy environment and its people health.

Objectives:
- To establish sustainable city-wide faecal sludge management system serving all municipal residents in Faridpur municipality by 2025
- To finalise the National FSM Regulatory Framework and strengthening sectoral coordination for improved knowledge and learning exchanges
