Helping to Plan and Prioritize Sanitation Challenges
Municipal officials responsible for the management of sanitation services converged at the Durban ICC from 15-16 October to actively participate in a Shit-Flow Diagram (SFD) and Faecal Sludge Management Toolbox Master Class.

The aim of the Master Class is to assist municipalities with improving the understanding of the sanitation situation and challenges faced/improvement actions required. It provides guidance to decision makers on improving faecal sludge management (FSM) using a tool that takes into account all the components of the sanitation value chain.

SFD is an easy visualised representation of excreta flows and serves as advocacy tool to ensure human excreta is managed safely through the sanitation supply chain. The benefit of the tool is that it offers an innovative way to engage relevant stakeholders including political leaders, sanitation experts, and civil society organizations in a co-ordinated dialogue about excreta management.

The Master Class is a collaborative initiative between the Municipal Benchmarking Initiative (MBI), the South African Local Government Association (SALGA), Water Research Commission (WRC), EMANTI and the Municipal Institute of Learning (MILE). 

The Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) Toolbox, developed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is a tool designed to assist the sanitation sector with status quo assessments, planning improvements, financial estimates preparation, etc. Furthermore, the FSM Toolbox currently contains a number of case studies and resources aimed at various sector stakeholders and along various components of the sanitation supply chain.

The informative two day session will focus on developing excreta flow diagrams and provided a dynamic, practical and interactive platform for practitioners to engage and learn. At the end of the workshop, participants will have the confidence to use the SFD and FSM Toolbox to assess, plan and prioritize sanitation related challenges within their towns and communities.  

Practitioners who attended the full course will earn 2 Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points from the Institute of Municipal Engineering South Africa (IMESA).
