Training on Implementing and Operationalising Faecal Sludge Management

Dear All,

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.

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.

Training: 5-7 February 2019
Exposure visit: 8 February 2019

Training: CASS, Kengeri, Bangalore
Exposure visit: FSTP, Devanahalli, Bangalore

Re: Training on Implementing and Operationalising Faecal Sludge Management

Dear CDD Lead Member- Training.

It is indeed needed and encouraging to note that Training on FSM is being done.
Have been on to implmntng Dewats plants of varied capacities, yearly 1 plant.

And feel elated that many have sustained and serving the communities.

A few suggestions to consider, upon implmntng the plants :

1. The effluent to be as far as possible EIA Compliant and recycled for on site use.

2. O&M ( operation & maintainance ) principles, practices to be followed strictly. A poorly maintained FSM STP if not maintained, is as good as it is non-existent or by passed .
On the other hand, a well run plant gives both tangible & intangible benefits .

3. It is a good CBM - Confidence Building Measure, in communities when the FSM plant is used as an asset and resources audited.

The above notings are issued for doing both social and environmental good in communities.

Well wishes
