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.

Sustainable solutions which limit operation and management challenges

  • Solutions and decisions are based on rigorous academic and field based research

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.
