The purpose of the project was to increase the levels of stakeholders understanding and commitment, and to strengthen the overall enabling environment for sanitation and in particular Feacal Sludge Management (FSM) in Dar es Salaam. The project aimed to contribute to develop the basis of an inclusive and equitable approach to urban sanitation in Tanzania that recognizes the critical importance of sanitation in informal urban settlements. In addition, it aimed to train representatives from LGAs and Public Utilities how innovative off grid solution can provide affordable access to sanitation to low income households.
This could be achieved by bring together stakeholders from the water, sanitation, health and financial public and private sectors, with the aim of achieving a common level of understanding on Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) and to develop approaches on developing the sanitation and city planning sector. Advocacy and information materials were developed to support this process. This was achieved in 3 phases:
Sector wide consensus building,
Regular knowledge exchange and learning events, and
Establishment of long-term partnership and knowledge exchange.
The project objectives were achieved by:
stakeholder engagement within personal meetings,
a kick-off workshop,
Training for key stakeholders aiming at introducing FSM along the sanitation value chain,
two working group meetings (each with 4 working groups), one last working group meeting for establishing long-term knowledge exchange,
one final dissemination workshop, and
documentation of all outputs which was eventually the baseline for a “FSM Guide for Dar es Salaam”.
During the kick-off workshop and the coordination meetings five working groups were formulated to discuss challenges and driver for FSM in the Dar es Salaam context:
Stakeholder analysis –roles and responsibilities,
Standards of effluents and by products,
Optimized Technical Solutions, and
Establishment of long-term Knowledge Exchange.
