FSM5 co-hosted with AfricaSan5 this year

The FSM5 conference has joined forces with the African Minister’s Council on Water to co-convene with the AfricaSan 5 conference. Through this partnership, conference attendees will have access to a unique synergistic program that combines the political will of AfricaSan along with the technical, practical, and academic expertise of the FSM Conference. Attendees will have access to all public session organized by both conferences via one registration fee.

The fifth FSM conference will continue its mission of advocating and sharing good practice and innovation to improve how faecal sludge is managed and contributes to meeting the sanitation needs of 4.5 billion people lacking access to sustainable sanitation services. This platform creates additional impetus to address the demands and challenges of the sanitation sector Africa, whilst also continuing to maintain the independent identity and global focus of the FSM conferences, including Asia. It will, once again provide the opportunity for sector professionals, governments, policy-makers, utilities, development partners, investors, industries and service providers to coordinate, develop and share learning to provide affordable and workable solutions at scale. This conference 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.
