The main objective of this baseline study was to understand the current situation of faecal sludge management (FSM) and practices of residential premises in three cities in southern Bangladesh: Khulna, Kushtia and Jhenaidah. A second objective was to establish a benchmark for the FSM programme.
The baseline consists of two parts:
1) A quantitative part measuring access to sanitation, hygiene and FSM services at residential premises.
2) A qualitative part assessing the capacities and enabling environment factors affecting safe sanitation and FSM services.
This report covers the first part.
We collected information through a questionnaire survey of sampled households. We employed a stratified random sampling method designed to detect relatively small changes in the survey indicators with a satisfying degree of precision. To conduct the study, we gathered information on five impact indicators:
• Access to sanitary facilities
• Hygienic use and maintenance of sanitation facilities
• Access to hand washing with soap
• Safety of pit emptying and collection, and
• Safe treatment and disposal
