SFD Manual Spanish and Portugese translation

An excreta flow diagram (also often described as shit flow diagram, SFD) presents a clear picture of the outcome arising from wastewater and faecal sludge management practices and services in a city or town. This is expressed in terms of the percentage of the population. An accompanying report describes the service delivery context of the city or town.

The output from the SFD production process is a concise report (SFD Report) which contains the graphic (SFD Graphic), the qualitative assessment of the service delivery context and a complete record of the data sources used.

The SFD approach includes standardized guidance – a methodology and tools - for the easy production of standardized SFD Graphics. The SFD Manual – Volumes 1 and 2 (version 2.0), as well available in French and Arabic, and the SFD Graphic Generator were developed to enable the development of future SFD Reports.
