About The Alliance

The FSM Alliance is a member based network, having both individual and organizational members, governed by an executive committee and managed by four staff members. Our success is shared success with our members and partners contributing to the resources and helping to implement the Alliance’s goals and strategies. The FSM Alliance is currently in the process of developing their membership process and benefits.

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.

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. The Toolbox also contains many case studies to draw upon. The map below shows how many countries have used the ToolBox.
