India has declared itself open defecation free (ODF). The infamous distinction of having the world’s largest number of people defecating in the open is history. But does that signal an end to our quest for sanitation? Most certainly not. 

The country is beginning to wake up to a fresh challenge: how to treat the massive quantities of faecal sludge generated from the millions of new toilets we have built? How do we prevent all this waste from seeping into our groundwater or our lakes and rivers? What are the safe, adaptable and sustainable technologies for managing toilet waste and for reusing faecal sludge? 

We bring you a training programme designed to understand the problem and explore solutions, conducted at our state-of-the-art residential training facility in Nimli, Rajasthan, by renowned experts in the field. 

The training is open to Indian participants only. Participants should provide a negative RT-PCR test report conducted within 72 hours before the date of the journey. 


  1. Information on safe toilet technologies practised in different ecological regions of India
  2. Understanding of decentralized technologies used for management of grey and black water
  3. How to retrofit a faulty toilet
  4. How to treat untreated and partially treated faecal sludge before further disposal
  5. What are the options to reuse faecal sludge and wastewater
  6. How to use Information, Education and Communication (IEC) material effectively for making an ODF state sustainable
  7. How to develop guidelines for making detailed project reports (DPRs) for managing faecal sludge
  8. Real-time problem analyses

A limited number of partial fellowships are available to Indians who have participated in CSE’s online courses on faecal sludge management in rural areas. The fellowships cover boarding and lodging costs, and the cost of training kits as well as training fees. They do do not include travel to and from Delhi.

Previous training feedback-
Mr. Vijay Kumar Sharma, SBM Directorate, Rajasthan
I strongly recommend this training for other district officials of Rajasthan. The training took up technical aspects important for SBM-Phase II guidelines especially designing of toilets and retrofitting of toilets in the present scenario. It was a very well conducted training.
Mr. Rishi Mudgal, SBM-G Directorate, Rajasthan
This training has addressed important aspects of fecal sludge management and has addressed issues while implementation during SBM Phase-1. The training could help us understand the on-ground practical aspects for implementation of technologies to which we had a theoretical perspective only.
