18-22 February 2019 Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

Co-convening with the AfricaSan5 conference, the FSM5 conference will bring together professionals working in the sector, including utilities, service providers, cities, governments, academics, scientists, consultants, donors and industries, to support the global initiative of disseminating sustainable solutions for faecal sludge management (FSM), in particular on the African continent. FSM5 will focus on practical solutions to sustainably manage the whole non-sewered sanitation service chain, covering the toilet, containment, emptying, transport, treatment and reuse, as an essential component of city-wide urban sanitation services. The conference will seek to demonstrate that FSM as a utility service can be: structured and regulated by government; delivered in partnership with private service providers; and organized to attract investment from government, development partners, commercial banks and private entities.

FSM5 is co-convened by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, Inclusive Sanitation in Practice (IPS), Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) and other partners.
