The PSMBV aims, through its activities, to make sanitation safe and sustainable by addressing weaknesses related to fecal sludge collection, transportation, treatment, and reuse.

Collection and Storage

  • Developing at least 2 to 3 innovative toilet technologies and service models for flood-prone areas
  • Expected Results – Developing a replicable business model to serve 5,000 families in flood-prone areas in Pikine by 2015
  • Developing a replicable technical and financial model in secondary urban centers and other cities in Africa.

Industrial organization of emptying system and fecal sludge transportation

  • Establishing an Operation License
  • Streamlining the collection service (mapping, geolocation, platform to manage emptying service supply and demand)
  • Facilitating Access to credit (Guarantee Fund) for emptying operators
  • Testing innovative technology (BMGF – Omni-Ingestor)

Financial sustainability of fecal sludge management

  • Setting up a policy and regulatory framework to increase private sector’s participation in sanitation investment
  • Developing by-products marketing technology
  • Ensuring financial sustainability of treatment
