Faecal Sludge Management

In this course we will address a holistic approach on FSM. There will be a focus on technology; however, technology cannot be seen separately from planning and management aspects; therefore, non-technical aspects will also be addressed in this module. As we are at IHE Delft gathering active knowledge on emergency sanitation and on sanitation challenges for the urban poor within the work related to the Bill&Melinda Gates Foundation grant, participants will be introduced to the latest findings in these fields.
