The approval of Institutional and Regulatory Framework for Fecal Sludge Management (IRF-FSM) in 2017 by the ministry of LGRD&C assigned primary responsibility for sanitation/FSM services to the LGIs within its jurisdiction area. Since IRF-FSM is relatively new to the most of the LGIs (though, they have been consulted while developing IRF-FSM), its leaders, officials and also to the officials of technical support organizations, DPHE. So, to be acquainted with LGIs’ leaders and DPHE officials with IRF-FSM, ITN-BUET, UNICEF and PSB of Local Government Division organized a number of dissemination workshops both at ITN-BUET and City Corporations. Mayors of all 329 Paurashavas, top officials of City Corporations, WASAs, RAJUK, City Development Authorities and DPHE officials have been invited to participate in these dissemination events.
