Training on Preparation of Shit Flow Diagrams (SFDs)

July 10, 2018

For Improved Urban Sanitation Programming at City-Wide Scale

Date:  From 10th to 12th July 2018
Venue: Centre for Science and Environment, 41, Tughlakabad Institutional Area New Delhi-110062, India

Mapping excreta of a city is increasingly used toanalyze the sanitation in urban areas.An excreta flow diagram (also often described as shit flow diagram), can help to achieve this by offering a new and innovative way to engage sanitation experts, political leaders and civil society in coordinated discussions about excreta management in their city. 

SFD is a tool to readily understand and communicate visualizing how excreta physically flows through a city or town. It shows how excreta is or is not contained as it moves from defecation to disposal or end-use, and the fate of all excreta generated. An accompanying report describes the service delivery context of the city or town. For more information on SFDs visit sfd.susana.org. 

The School of Water and Waste, CSE, is organized a three days training on “Preparation of SFD” at Centre for Science and Environment, 41, Tughlakabad Institutional Area New Delhi-110062, India.

The said training was for young professionals. The registration of participants was strictly on invitation basis.

Aim
To develop the skills of young professional on using tools like excreta flow diagram for improved urban sanitation programming at city-wide scale.

Learning outcomes

  • Understand SFDs (graphic and report) and the history of their development
  • Understand the need for a standardized methodology
  • Understand the available tools including their context, range and how to use them

Working on a Sanitation Programme, SFD would help to understand the gaps in the value chain. My strength with regard to data collection, interpretation, assumptions & analysis has been developed.

Vinitha M, Environmental Engineer, Keystone Foundation, Training of Trainers (ToT) on "Preparation of excreta flow diagram (Shit Flow Diagram-SFD)" on 07-08 September 2016

The course was presented in an enthusiasticway. Especially, I was not aware of Shit Flow Diagram (SFD) before joined this training course. SFD is a good tool for the Planners, Environmental Professionals and Consultants to draw a graphic flow diagram of any town which can play an important role in the town planning.

A lot of efforts have been put by CSE to comprehend the SFD and basic concept of sanitation to us. Take a bow Boss! Cheers!

All the environmentalists, environmental engineers, students etc who wants to pursue their career in sanitation and faecal sludge management must learn SFD
- Vaishnavi Garg
This training provided opportunity to get soaked in new experience of actually observing how human waste is being handled. The training also provided a practical knowledge through a mock exercise in field. Overall, the training was excellent and well planned and manged throughout.
