The fourth conference on developments in Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) took place in Chennai, India where the State Government recently initiated measures to address FSM with regard to policy, regulatory changes, innovative solutions, and pilots.
The conference aimed at bringing together professionals working in the sector, including utilities, service providers, cities, governments, academics, scientists, consultants, donors and industries, to support the global initiative of disseminating sustainable solutions for FSM. Focus was put upon innovative and practical solutions that can be scaled up.
The FSM4 was structured into three tracks; research, case studies, and industry and took place for three days. On the fourth day, 23 February 2017, an intersting workshop was conducted on the Key Role of FSM in Modern Urban Sanitation Systems.

The key objective of the workshop was to foster the role of FSM in modern urban sanitation systems. The workshop drew precursors for city-wide sanitation during planning and enabling environment framework conditions to be addressed for successful up-scaling of FSM solutions. Differentiators while handling typical city conditions versus urban poor needs as well as independent versus complementary wastewater management solutions were unbundled with practical case examples from India and Kenya.
