Dear members,

I am pleased to let you know that the call for abstracts for the 5th International Faecal Sludge Management Conference (FSM5) is now open!

The conference will take place from 17-22 February in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

The focus of FSM5 will be to demonstrate FSM as a utility service that can be:
• Structured and regulated by government
• Delivered in partnership with private service providers
• Organized to attract investment from government, development partners, commercial banks, and private entities

The organising committee encourages submissions from entrepreneurs, municipal practitioners, NGOs, consultants, industry, researchers and scientists to submit abstracts for presentations in the three tracks given. Preference will be given to abstracts that present practical and applicable results.

The three tracks are:

1) City Case Studies
2) Industry and Exhibition
3) Applied Research

Submissions are accepted until 15 June 2018.
