The Handbook is an initiative of Sanitation Capacity Building Platform (SCBP) to build capacities in Feacal Sludge and Septage Management (FSSM) for officials of urban local bodies (ULB), para state technical agencies, administrators and professionals from the private sector and Non-governmental Organizations. It is meant to be freely used by any can organization (public or private), national and state level training institutes, AMRUT and SBM Training institutes: for conducting a one to one and a half day basic Orientation Training on FSSM.
The Handbook presents the key learning elements for the basic training module in a narrative format covering the aspect of: urbanization trend, urban sanitation concepts, Open Defecation Free (ODF) priorities, terminologies, technologies, financing and behaviour change, in the urban sanitation policy and program framework of India.
The Handbook has been developed based on the experience of delivering FSSM trainings to ULB officials by NIUA and SCBP partners in 2016-17. Achieving ODF towns and cities, and sustaining them, will remain a challenge for many states. This Module attempts to bridge the ODF and ODF+ (FSSM and grey water treatment) challenges that India faces.
The Handbook is Part A of the Basic FSSM Orientation Module. The other two Parts (B & C) are available on request.
The module gives an overview of the Sanitation Capacity Building Platform (SCBP), handbook, training module, agenda, pre-evaluation forms and learning notes. Apart from this, the module encompasses the following 5 sessions:
• Urban Sanitation and Fundamentals of FSSM
• Planning for FSSM at Town level – Containment & Conveyance
• Septage Treatment and Reuse/Disposal
• Planning for FSSM and its Financing
• IEC & BCC for FSSM
