National Policy on Faecal Sludge and Septage Management (2017) highlights that on-site pit latrines and septic tanks account for a substantial proportion of toilets in urban India. The objectives and corresponding benefits of Swachh Bharat Mission cannot be achieved without proper management of Faecal Sludge and Septage across the sanitation service chain. Sewerage coverage will not meet the complete sanitation needs in all areas, and a strategy which is a combination of on-site sanitation and off-site sanitation must co-exist in all cities.Stateslike Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh have initiated scaling-up Faecal Sludge Treatment Plants (FSTPs) in the state. As of now more than 400 FSTPs are proposed across the country.

Taking cognizance of the need for capacity building of all the stakeholders in the sector and support needed by States and Cities in their journey beyond ODF, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE)is organizing anAdvanced Training on ‘Planning and Designing of Treatment of Faecal Sludge &Septage’.

  • Planning for FSSM interventions in a city and understanding the economics of effective FSSM across the value chain.
