5th International Faecal Sludge Management Conference - 17-22 February 2019 in Cape Town, South Africa - Call for abstracts now open



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 Cape Town, South Africa.

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.

Please visit fsm5.susana.org/ for further information and to submit your abstract.

SuSanA, as the virtual home of the FSM5 conference, will keep you updated as the conference draws closer.

The FSM5 Planning Committee has partnered with the African Minister’s Council on Water (AMCOW) to jointly host AfricaSan 5 during the same week in Cape Town. Stay tuned for more exciting details about this partnership.


Registration for the FSM5 conference is not yet open, but coming soon.

We are looking forward to receiving your submissions!

Best wishes,

Franziska (on behalf of the SuSanA Secretariat)
