AN ANALYTICAL WORKSHOP ON CHALLENGES & SOLUTIONS IN PLANNING EMPTYING & TRANSPORTATION OF FAECAL SLUDGE

Providing safe and affordable Faecal Sludge Collection services to all is a major component of CWIS and at the same time is one of its major challenges. Service delivery to informal neighborhoods is related to high costs mainly influenced by time and distance. Willingness and ability to pay are frequently lower than the costs. Thus, to extend the service coverage it is crucial not only to reduce the costs by increasing the efficiency of service models but also to guarantee a safe flow of revenue for the service providers. In most cases, the emptying and transportation services are provided by private businesses. Thus, enabling them to scale up their services is a key component of a city-wide inclusive sanitation plan. Within this session, we would like to facilitate a discussion on the concerns of the pit emptiers and the current approaches which can enable the scaling of FS collection services.
