Event Details

In this webinar, FSMA spotlights the Container-Based Sanitation Implementation Guide (1st Edition).

Container-Based Sanitation (CBS) is a sanitation service that provides toilets with sealable, removable containers that are collected on a regular basis to safely dispose of or reuse faecal sludge.

The Container-Based Sanitation Alliance (CBS Alliance)'s first CBS implementation guide sets down in one place numerous learnings from several CBS-focused organisations in a variety of locations around the world including Ghana, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Kenya, Madagascar, Peru and the UK.

The presentation of the guide will be followed by a panel discussion with representatives from the CBS Alliance and two of its member organisations (Sanergy and Sanivation). There will also be time for questions from the audience.


The FSMA Spotlights webinar series aims to highlight key aspects and discussions around FSM and the sanitation service chain.
