Since the launch of the Swachh Bharat Mission in 2014 and the subsequent implementation of the National Policy on Faecal Sludge and Septage Management (FSSM) in 2017, significant progress has been made in Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) in various states in India. This has led to the establishment and operation of over 800 Faecal Sludge Treatment Plants (FSTPs) throughout the country.
However, on-ground studies conducted by Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) in Maharashtra, Telangana and Chhattisgarh (where FSM has been scaled up since 2017), andCSE’s experience of working in Uttar Pradesh suggest that besides design faults in some cases, even operational FSTPs are facing challenges ranging from irregular and inadequate de-sludging to poor operations and maintenance, resulting in under-utilisation of the full capacity of an FSTP.
To address this gap, it is crucial to enhance expertise in the planning and design of treatment systems. CSE is organising a four-day trainingprogramme on the subject, with the aim of equipping practitioners and government officials with:
The training style is based on the ‘Harvard Case Method’, which conveys teaching messages through interactive sessions and practical work done by trainers/trainees. The training will be focused on experiential learning – including individual/group interaction, practical group exercises, interaction with experts, discussions, field visit and documentary films to highlight the best management practices successfully implemented. Furthermore, the training is complimented by sessions and discussions on existing case studies which demonstrate the recommended actions and interventions for sustainable sanitation management.
