About The Alliance

The FSM Alliance is a member-based network to support organisations and individuals working in
faecal sludge management (FSM). Our goal is to create a collaborative, responsive, and collective
platform to advocate for the adoption and implementation of FSM as a utility service. We also aim to
support our members in their work in helping to achieve SDG 6.2 and improve access to safely
managed sanitation.

Our Vision

A world where all people, everywhere, enjoy equitable access to safely managed and dignified sanitation services, which recognizes and treats human waste as a valued resource, improving health, reducing poverty and safeguarding the environment.

Our Mission

We set the agenda, champion and promote the development of inclusive sanitation approaches, particularly faecal sludge management (FSM) and non-sewered sanitation (NSS), to ensure human health and dignity, and the health of urban ecosystems.

WaterAid Bangladesh
WaterAid started operation in Bangladesh since 1986 as one of the lead actors in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) sector and is well experienced in innovating, scaling up and managing large scale projects targeting poor, vulnerable and excluded.
The Coverage of WaterAid Bangladesh
The geographic focus of WaterAid Bangladesh includes urban slums, hard-to-reach areas and eco-hazardous zones such as hill tract and hillocks, dry and arid barind tract, salinity-prone coastal belt, haor and flood-prone chars keeping an eye over the climate change implications.
The Working Area of WaterAid Bangladesh
We have four programmes, divided into several individual projects, being operated throughout Bangladesh. Our Influencing & Enabling (I&E) programme aims to strengthen sectoral policies, planning and capacity towards more capable and coordinate responses to emerging WASH challenges. Our Rural programme intends to address these issues and make a lasting change in the lives of the poor through ensuring inclusive and sustainable WASH services in households, healthcare facilities and schools for the most vulnerable and excluded communities in remote rural areas. Our Urban WASH programme targets the thousands of people who are migrating from rural rural areas to take refuge in urban slums each year. Our Climate Resilience programme works with communities and local government to introduce participatory methods of assessing vulnerability to climate change and disasters.

The FSM Toolbox

Our FSM ToolBox contains a wealth of information about sanitation planning, stakeholder engagement and business models. Watch this introductory video to see if the ToolBox can be useful for your needs. 



We strive to achieve safely managed faecal sludge to areas with poor management. Our goals are also linked with other streams of sustainability such as sustainable cities, access to clean water and the power of partnerships.
