Faecal sludge management guide

Faecal sludge management is the collection, transport, treatment and reuse or disposal of faecal sludge from pit latrines, septic tanks and other on-site sanitation technologies, and is crucial to achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. You can use this guide as a reference document to help create better sanitation programmes, specifically to make sure sanitation is safely managed for everyone, everywhere.

This guide does not replace the wealth of existing resources on faecal sludge management, but rather offers a subjective selection of approaches, principles, tools, technologies and projects.
