Training Program on Implemeting and Operationalizing Faecal Sludge Management by CASS, Bangalore

About FSM:

The awareness for faecal sludge management (FSM) in India has been on the rise since 2016. With developments like the demonstration of pilot treatment facilities and the issuance of a National Policy on Faecal Sludge and Septage Management (FSSM), FSM has indeed arrived into the consciousness of many governments and private sector players. In the next five years, it is expected that more than 500 FSTPs will be designed, built and operated in India. However, presently there is a significant gap in the understanding of faecal sludge management opportunities and operations amongst practitioners such as contractors and operators. As a result, many tenders go unattended.

About the training:

This training aims to address this gap by creating a pool of private sector enterprises, which can cater to the increasing demand for faecal sludge management services. The training will cover a wide range of topics covering opportunity landscape, technology, contracting models, regulations around FSM as well as provide an interactive bidding simulation experience to participants. The training also includes experience sharing by a private entrepreneur on running FSM services in India and Malaysia.

Exposure visit: Participants shall visit a model FSM town – Devanahalli, where they shall interact with the private operator providing FSM as an integrated service to the town municipal corporation. In addition, participants shall also interact with representatives from the local government to understand their role in providing FSM at a town-scale and challenges of public-private partnerships.
