Water and Sanitation hosts National Faecal Sludge Management Strategy workshop, 15 Nov

The Department of Water and Sanitation to host the Stakeholders’ Consultation Workshop on the National Faecal Sludge Management Strategy
The National Faecal Sludge Management Strategy encourages sustainable sanitation management along the sanitation value chain to prevent health hazards and protect the environment. It also enhances operation and maintenance of on-site sanitation systems and prevent groundwater contamination.
Sanitation has economic value and SA has recognised the need to pursue sanitation resource recovery, recycling, and reuse. The strategy therefore creates a transition from treating sanitation as waste to treating it as a resource and using it to create economic and job opportunities.
The workshop will be attended by various stakeholders who will make inputs into the Draft National Faecal Sludge Management Strategy and also share lessons learned on faecal sludge management initiatives and practicalities of implementation.
