FSMA Membership

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 support our members in their work in helping to achieve SDG 6.2 and to improve access to safely managed sanitation.

As the only member network devoted exclusively to FSM, we offer an exciting range of individual and organisational member benefits, as well as a pricing structure which includes reduced rates for students, individuals from low-to-middle-income countries and small organisations.

Country Classification

For our individual memberships, FSMA uses a high income vs. low-to-middle income country classification. Individuals who are based in low and middle-income countries, (those with a per capita gross national income (GNI) of less than US$ 12,536) benefit from discounted membership fees. The ranking is based on the World Bank Atlas Method using GNI per Capita (in US Dollars, last updated July 2020, source). Please consult the list below to verify whether you are from a high or low-to-middle income country.
