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, as well as increased sector investments in partnership with private sector financiers and development partners. Its implementation should permit to 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 over a total duration of 30 months, under two components, namely: (i) feasibility studies and engineering design and (ii) project management. The estimated total cost (excluding taxes) is € 1,981,203.
The overall objective of the project is to contribute to increasing access to safe, sustainable and inclusive sanitation services, with improved hygiene and faecal sludge management services for people living in deprived urban areas in Uganda. The specific objectives are to contribute to: (a) increasing access to safe, sustainable and inclusive on site sanitation; (b) increasing access to efficient and sustainable faecal sludge management infrastructure and services; (c) creating opportunities for increased sub sector investments.
