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.

Member Spotlight

Introducing our monthly Member Spotlight –
Where we will highlight our members and the exciting work they do in the sector! 

CWIS Technical Assistance Hub in South Asia 
A paradigm shift is needed to move away from the ‘business as usual’ urban sanitation model that benefits only a few people with selective and inadequate services. A new model that incorporates everybody and benefits everybody from adequate sanitation service, with comprehensive and creative approaches to sanitation improvement is necessary. A new public service approach, named City Wide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS) has been pioneered by different development institutions.
It is against the realization that CWIS initiative needs to be operationalized, the City-Wide Inclusive Sanitation Technical Assistance Hub South Asia (‘TA Hub’) was established with the support from BMGF. The TA Hub has been established to provide rapid technical assistance to the government and the development partners in designing and implementation of the urban sanitation projects by utilizing national and international experts. It has been doing so by leveraging and synthesizing unique experiences, insights and technological solutions from range of experts to find synergistic and inter-related opportunities for improving the sanitation situation in South and Southeast Asia with quality implementation of CWIS programs.

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.
