Faecal Sludge Management

IHE Delft Institute for Water Education

Certificate / Diploma Short course Delft

Course description

Qualification Certificate
Field of study Agriculture and environment
Course summary This course deals with mainly technologies and some planning and management of Faecal Sludge Management for sludge from onsite sanitation systems.
Course description Faecal sludge management (FSM) is incredibly important in sanitation. While the focus has been on the provision of toilets mainly in the light of the MDGs, the adequate collection and treatment of the remaining faecal sludge was not always a priority, to say the least. As so many factors play a role in faecal sludge management – climate, hard ware, a vast number of stakeholders, willingness to pay, space to store and treat, groundwater pollution, different toilet types – a proper and well-functioning faecal sludge management system is hard to achieve. In this module we will address a holistic approach on FSM. There will be a focus on technology; however, technology cannot be seen separately from planning and management aspects; therefore, non-technical aspects will also be addressed in this module.
Study subjects  Public Health and Sanitation  Excreta Characterisation  Faecal Sludge Sanitation Systems  Non-technical aspects of FSM  Specific circumstances
Course objectives  Describe the way how excreta and faecal sludge are characterised.  Know which technologies can be applied for which type of faecal sludge (settling tanks, planted and unplanted drying beds, etc)  Name the key stakeholders in FSM.  Describe the relationship between sanitation and health.  Name the challenges in emergency sanitation and know how emergency sanitation can be addressed.  Be familiar with the latest developments in sustainable (on-site) sanitation solutions that can be applied
