Webinar poster Building a Decision Tree for Rural FSM

There are millions of toilets across India with single or double pits or just containment tanks. Very soon those will fill up. Emptying them and transporting, treating and safely reusing the waste is a formidable challenge. 

Organised by UNICEF India, SuSanA India Chapter, IRC, WaterAid India, the India Sanitation Coalition, CSE and CDD Society, this webinar discussed the best way to deal with faecal sludge management (FSM) in rural areas, and who should do it. The webinar was held on 9th March from 16:00-17:30 IST (11:30-13:00 CET).
