UPM Umwelt-Projekt-Management GmbH (UPM) is pleased to announce the publication of seven training manuals on Sanitation, Fecal Sludge Management and Waste-to-Value technologies and approaches in informal settlements and camp settings. The manuals, updated earlier this year, have been developed based on a series of training workshops organized by UPM in Cox’s Bazar (CXB) and attended by 125 people from 35 organizations of the CXB WASH Technical Working Group (hereafter Working Group) in total. The training sessions took place within the framework of the Assignment from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for Technical Assistance for Sanitation/Fecal Sludge (FS) Management in the Rohingya Refugees’ Crisis in Bangladesh. Due to the Covid-19 Crisis, the implementation of the training had stopped during Q1 2020.
The program of the training series was based on a training-needs-assessment organized with the Working Group. The objectives were to provide trainees with an introduction to new concepts, technologies and a reasonable ability to plan, design and monitor a sanitation project as an output based on/or including innovative FSM and Waste-to-value solutions. The content provided in those manuals cannot replace formal engineering training.
The published manuals include the following topics and can be download from the Water, Sanitation & Hygiene Gateway of the Gates Open Research website:
- Sampling Faecal Sludge and Other Liquid Wastes in Emergency Settings
- Comprehensive Overview Biogas for Sanitation Options – Training of Trainers
- Design Considerations for Simplified Sewer Network in Informal Settlements
- Anaerobic Baffled Reactor (ABR) Design Considerations for Faecal Sludge
