Baseline Data Collection
3.5.1. Shit Flow Diagram – SFD

What is an SFD?</p>

An SFD presents a clear picture of how wastewater and faecal sludge management services are delivered in a city and the resulting challenges; these can then be linked to aspects of service delivery where improvements are needed.

An SFD for any city or town is in three parts:

1. a diagram which shows the pathways all excreta generated by a city's population takes from defecation to final fate - either unsafe discharge to the environment, or safe reuse/disposal;

2. a concise narrative report on the diagram and the service delivery context - including the enabling environment within which the services are being delivered; and

3. a complete record of all the data sources used in developing the diagram and report - the stakeholders consulted, documents reviewed and all validation and quality control exercises implemented.
