Project General Description

The present intervention concerns the Feasibility Studies and Detailed Designs for Faecal Sludge Service Chain Management in Un-Sewered Urban Centers in Uganda. It’s designed because of the need to increase access to safe, sustainable and inclusive sanitation and hygiene, with improved management of faecal sludge for people living in deprived urban communities in Uganda. The project aims to improve the quality of life and living conditions of Ugandans, and provides opportunity for better regional and town level sanitation planning, and increased sector investments in partnership with private sector financiers and development partners. The proposed Project should support Government efforts to provide inclusive and sustainable access to faecal sludge management infrastructure and services, through preparation of feasibility studies and detailed engineering designs for future investments under the proposed Water Supply and Sanitation Program (Phase III). The project will be implemented under two components, namely: (i) feasibility studies and engineering design and (ii) project management.
