Project Profile

Training Programme for FSM

Duration : January 1, 2017 - August 31, 2017

The program targets existing entrepreneurs and organizations to move into treatment and re-use solutions in sanitation, by lowering the barriers and risks to move into this sector. The program will provide technical assistance, leverage existing infrastructure as much as possible (reducing capex funding dependency at an early stage) and enable local business partners in developing viable business models. These business models will be based on existing business models and innovations from around the globe and adapted / replicated to the local Indian context. In the context of this program, Enviu wishes to award a sub grant to IWMI for its international network and expertise in the field of Fecal Sludge Management (FSM) business models, execution of feasibility studies and technical support to entrepreneurs.
