4th International Faecal Sludge Management Conference

19-22 February 2017 in Chennai, India

Building on the success of the first three International FSM Conferences in Hanoi (2015) and in Durban (2011& 2012), FSM4 aims to 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 FSM.

FSM4 will be held in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, where the State Government has recently initiated measures to address FSM with regard to policy, regulatory changes, innovative solutions, and pilots. FSM4 will focus on innovative and practical solutions that can be scaled up, including three tracks: research, case studies, and industry & exhibition.

Registration is not yet open, but coming soon.

The organising committee encourages submissions from municipal practitioners, NGOs, consultants, industry, researchers and scientists to submit abstracts for presentations in the three tracks given. Preference will be given to abstracts that present practical and applicable results.

The three tracks are:

1) FSM Research Track
2) FSM Case Studies Track
3) FSM Industry and Exhibition Track

Submissions are accepted until 30 September 2016.

Please visit fsm4.susana.org/ for further information and to submit your paper.

A template is available for download.
