Last date for registration: 17th January 2021

Further Description / Program

As the countries around the world are striving towards achieving the target of sanitation for all by 2030, it is increasingly acknowledged that there is a need to look for practical and economical solutions to scale up access to sanitation infrastructure and services. Faecal sludge management (FSM) is increasingly considered as the scalable solution that has become the need of the hour. Many national and provincial governments have formally endorsed FSM policies. These policies emphasise the need for not just asset creation for containment, collection, conveyance, and treatment of faecal sludge but also creating an enabling environment-institutional, legal, policy, and active community engagement- for FSM services to thrive. To make any sustainable improvements across the FSM value chain, it is essential to systemically and effectively plan for the procurement, roll-out, operations, financial sustainability, and monitoring of assets and services.

Taking these measures related to FSM requires expertise on the part of the officials, consultants, and professionals working to improve the sanitation of an area.

This Online Course - “Advanced Training on Planning for Faecal Sludge Management Implementation”. is a capacity-building initiative to address the lack of know-how in the domain to effectively understand and plan effective citywide faecal sludge management strategies for cities and towns. The training aims to equip the participants with knowledge, tools, and thoughts to embrace the journey of FSM implementation more efficiently and with fewer bottlenecks.

The course will also include 60 minutes of one-on-one consultation session for each participant over 9 days. During these sessions, participants can take up any question on their current/ future projects in faecal sludge management, and our experts will help them with that.

Target participants:

1) Planners and decision-makers working on sanitation in government;
2) Individuals involved as project management consultants with state governments or Urban Local Bodies and have sanitation as a part of their scope of work;
3) Professionals in the water and sanitation who wish to strengthen their understanding of faecal sludge management.

Learning Outcomes
•Participants have a fair understanding of how to plan effective faecal sludge management strategies for an area.
•Participants will be able to apply learning to create an FSM plan for an area at the end of the nine-day training program.
