The FSM Alliance is excited to take on its role as the organiser for the International Faecal Sludge Management conference (FSM conference). The FSM Alliance was announced at AfricaSan 5/FSM5 in Cape Town, South Africa in February 2019 to create a centralised platform for those working in the FSM sub-sector.
For more information about the organisation, please see www.fsm-alliance.org.
The 6th International Faecal Sludge Management conference FSM6 will continue its mission of sharing best practice and innovation to improve how faecal sludge is managed and how to expand service to the 4.5 billion people lacking access to safely managed sanitation. The FSM conference is held bi-annually and alternates between the continents of Asia and Africa.
FSM6 is offering an exciting opportunity for various organisations to gain special recognition via conference sponsorship. Our conference continues to go from strength to strength showing increased growth in all aspects of the event.
Held over a five day period it includes a diverse set of activities and sessions such as: a lively expo, field visits, an informative manual pit emptying challenge, technical presentations, workshops, networking opportunities, poster sessions, thematic sessions, and plenary discussions.
The FSM conference was established 10 years ago and remains the only event focused on FSM service delivery across the entire value chain, incorporating the most recent innovations, partnership models, practical application, and applied research.
The conference brings together a variety of FSM actors such as, sector professionals, governments, policy-makers, utilities, development partners, investors, industries and service providers; with the goal of creating the conference as a key facilitator to advance FSM planning and implementation.
