SNV has been implementing an Urban Sanitation Programme in 5 Southern cities (Khulna, Jhenaidah, Kushtia, Jashore and Benapole) and Gazipur over the past 6 years, through a multistakeholder coordination mechanism under the leadership of Local Government Institutions (City Corporations and Municipalities) to address service delivery challenges in Faecal Sludge Management (FSM). The project aims to facilitate a decisive shift in sector thinking, culture and practice through close alignment with respected sector agencies and working collectively with government and local partners to address underlying systemic sector issues that limit sector development.

Under the Urban Sanitation and Hygiene for Health and Development (USHHD) approach, work consists of 5 major components: 1) Sanitation demand creation and behavioural change communication; 2) Strengthening sanitation supply chain development; 3) Improving WASH Governance and multi-stakeholder sector development; 4) Sustainable Finance and Investment; and 5) Introducing environmentally safe treatment and re-use technologies.
