The main objective of the SFD Promotion Initiative is to continue further development of the SFD approach. This approach includes standardized guidance – a methodology and tools - for the easy production of standardized SFDs, backed by a description of information sources and the enabling environment in the city concerned.


The initiative aims to test the approach in 50 cities in Africa, Asia and Latin America and, for the benefit of sanitation practitioners, decision-makers and civil society across the globe, will disseminate the results widely via the SuSanA platform. The initiative is being managed by GIZ under the umbrella of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA). Since November 2014, GIZ has been supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation through a one year start-up grant to promote the initiative. Further roll out and improvement of SFDs beyond this first year is already being planned.
