The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is launching an online course on the preparation of Shit Flow Diagrams (SFDs). The course will last for the entire month of June and has a load of 8 h/week. You can find out more on their website and apply by May 24 (deadline was postponed). There are also scholarships available!
SFDs are a new and innovative way to engage sanitation experts, political leaders and civil society in coordinated discussions about excreta management in their city. It is a visualization tool that summarizes complex information into an easy-to-understand graphic, as it simply shows how excreta is or is not contained along the sanitation chain. It is a widely recognized advocacy and decision support tool, which has the potential to shift the focus of attention, money and activities towards effective and inclusive urban sanitation and more efficient investments, thereby, improving the situation of all urban residents and environment.
