Author: Swiss Federal Institue of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag), École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)

Year: undated

This online course starts with an overview of what faecal sludge is and an introduces to the concepts, engineering fundamentals and required information for the design and selection of sustainable faecal sludge management (FSM) technologies on a city-wide scale. Sanitation solutions are prone to failure if an integrated planning approach that includes stakeholder involvement and the development of appropriate institutional, management and financial arrangements is not implemented. The course therefore dedicates a complete week to presenting the full picture, in addition to technology, that needs to be considered for sustainable solutions. It concludes with a focus on current research and innovations in technologies, to provide an understanding of the most up-to-date options.

This course is one of four in the series “Sanitation, Water and Solid Waste for Development”.
