Knowledge Product: Integrated Approach for Development of Slums and Low Income Communities in Urban Areas of Bangladesh
An “integrated approach” (Knowledge Product – 3) has been proposed for holistic development of slums and low-income communities (LICs). The approach has been developed based on assessment of existing situation and challenges in slums and LICs, review of slum development approaches/experiences in different countries, and through extensive consultation involving all stakeholders. The “approach” involves identification of issues and challenges in urban slums and LICs under “four broad categories”, and then addressing the “interrelated issues and challenges” under each category systematically in an “integrated manner” involving all stakeholders including the LGI itself, I/NGOs, development partners, and other concerned agencies.
Knowledge Product : A proposed operational/business model for sustainable Fecal Sludge Management (FSM) services in urban areas of Bangladesh
This document, referred to as Knowledge Product, KP-2, presents a guideline for establishing an effective FSM operational/ business model in urban areas of Bangladesh. The model has been developed based on a detailed assessment of existing operations of FSM services in different urban centres of Bangladesh, a review of data/information and experience of running FSM services in other countries, and through extensive consultations involving all stakeholders.
Although the problems associated with FSM is widespread, there is limited data and information on FSM practices in urban areas. There are significant differences in institutional setup and FSM practices among and within cities/towns, and proper understanding of the situation is a pre-requisite for the development of a workable FSM system. The overall objective of the present case study was to assess the FSM scenario in different urban settings.
Faecal Sludge Treatment Plant (Reed Bed System: A Technology of Faecal Sludge Management in Sub-Urban Regions of Bangladesh
This document contains the concept, design consideration, design implementation methodology, treatment efficiency also the operation
and maintenance procedure of the implemented faecal sludge treatment plant. This is just the beginning; there might be some technological modification and other suitable options for better treatment facility. Moreover, people’s acceptability and area conditions are the other important issues had been taken in consideration during implementation.
