Water Programme, CSE conducted an International Training Programme, under the aegis of school of water and waste on Preparation of SFD. This programme targeted water activists, practitioners and decision-makers from Nepal, Bangladesh and India.This training aimed to develop the skills of practitioners on collecting and analysing data and using the graphic generator to produce Shit Flow Diagram along with a report for advocacy to achieve improved urban sanitation programming at a city-wide scale.

In total 23 participants from the above mentioned countries had enrolled. The training was divided into two parts. Part 1 was setting the context on the understanding the need for SFDs, what is an SFD (graphic and report), the evolution of SFDs and various application of SFDs. This module was conducted through an e-learning platform, where participants were provided with 8-10 hours (approx.) reading / audio-visual training material which they were expected to self-study. The platform has allowed participants and trainers to hold discussion threads where necessary. Part 2 was based on action learning through live virtual sessionsand peer to peer learning through group exercises done on virtual breakout rooms.

Selected participants of this training will develop SFDs for their target towns, decided as per their action plan. CSE will be providing helpdesk support to these participants so that credible SFDs can be developed.
