An excreta flow diagram (also often described as shit flow diagram, SFD) is a tool to readily understand and communicate how excreta physically flows through a city or town. The fate of excreta produced by populations across the globe is often poorly understood. SFDs show how it is or is not managed as it moves from defecation to disposal or end-use.
The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), under the SFD PI Phase 3 initiative, is deep-diving in South Africa for upscale and institutionalising SFDs with local partners Water Research Commission (WRC).As South African towns and cities plan to provide affordable and sustainable sanitation services to all, the authorities and regulators are challenged by weak baseline data and poor monitoring of sanitation strategies.
Under the Brown Drop initiative, South Africa aims for all municipalities to develop SFDs as a baseline for sanitation master planning, and use them as a monitoring tool to assess progress of city-wide sanitation strategies.
Aim and Objectives
As part of the national strategy for roll-out of SFDs, CSE and WRC are organising this online orientation workshop on SFD and City-Wide Sanitation Planning in South Africa. The workshop is aimed at providing context on how SFDs are developed, and their role in planning for sustainable and affordable sanitation solutions for South African towns. The objectives of the workshop are:
To identify cities / municipalities at beginner, intermediate and advance stages of SFD and FSM / city-wide sanitation planning
