Training on Faecal Sludge Management for Iraq

In order to correctly design, implement and sustain a safely managed faecal sludge system, it is imperative to consider not only the technical aspects of the system but also institutional, financial, socio-cultural, and environmental aspects. This training course therefore will focus on delivering a series of modules that discuss and build the participants’ capacity in integrated planning, relevant enabling environment components, and different phases of a Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) system project development and setup in addition to the introduction to different technologies that could be considered for each stage of FS treatment and what technology could be relevant to a specific local context and the limitation of other technologies that should not be considered.This training course will also focus on developing the participants’ capacity in developing of business, financial and institutional models that will help to sustain the sanitation (FSM) system.

This 5-day SSWM Training Course follows a participatory, cross-institutional and interdisciplinary approach. While outlining the training programme, great emphasis is laid on participants’ interaction: besides face-to-face lectures, group works and case studies, afield visit to an up-and-running Decentralised Wastewater Treatment System makes participants think in a holistic way.


The training will be held in collaboration with BORDA-WesCA Iraq. The application will open at least a month prior the training date.
