The fifth FSM conference will continue its mission of advocating and sharing good practice and innovation to improve how faecal sludge is managed and contributes to meeting the sanitation needs of 4.5 billion people lacking access to sustainable sanitation services. This platform creates an additional impetus to address the demands and challenges of the sanitation sector Africa, whilst also continuing to maintain the independent identity and global focus of the FSM conferences, including Asia. It will once again provide the opportunity for sector professionals, governments, policy-makers, utilities, development partners, investors, industries and service providers to coordinate, develop and share learning to provide affordable and workable solutions at scale.
This conference will focus on practical solutions to sustainably manage the whole non-sewered sanitation service chain, covering the toilet, containment, emptying, transport, treatment and reuse, as an essential component of city-wide urban sanitation services.
The focus of FSM5 will be to demonstrate FSM as a utility service that can be:
1. Structured and regulated by the government
2. Delivered in partnership with private service providers
3. Organized to attract investment from government, development partners, commercial banks, and private entities
