About training programme: 
The aim of the training programme was to develop a cadre of practitioners with knowledge, skills and attitude for mainstreaming sustainable FSSM in Bangladesh.   

The training included current state of knowledge of this rapidly evolving field and presents an integrated approach that includes planning, technology and management. It addressed the planning and organization of the entire faecal sludge management service chain, from the collection and transport of sludge and its treatment options, to the final end use or disposal of treated sludge.

The training was conducted based on state of the art teaching – learning tools consisting of interactive sessions, experiential learning using detailed case studies, working in groups on planning and designing and class room lectures supported by documentary films. 

In addition to providing fundamentals and an overview of technologies, the training dealt with details of operational, institutional and financial aspects, and provides guidance on how to make a city-level faecal sludge management plan with the involvement of all the stakeholders.
