Urban Sanitation & Hygiene for Health & Development (USHHD) Programme
SNV understands safe sanitation and hygiene services as a pre-condition for health and economic development in cities. With an annual urbanization rate of 4.4% (World Bank, 2016), a failure to invest in urban sanitation will become a barrier for almost any development. Access to sanitation is a human right and governments are the duty bearers of progressive realisation of this right. With the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), governments have committed to work towards universal access of safely managed sanitation services, this means services for all and addressing the safety of the entire sanitation value chain from access to safe disposal or re-use.
SNV supports local governments of Bandar Lampung & Metro Cities in Lampung Province and Tasikmalaya City in West Java Province to achieve sustainable and inclusive city-wide sanitation service in their area. Together, we change the way human waste is managed addressing different needs among the population, different parts of the sanitation service chain, and different geographical areas with appropriate service delivery models.
During the inception phase, SNV will analyse the city wide sanitation and hygiene service provision. In this “Mapping of Sanitation and Hygiene Service Provision” research, the main objective is to map the existing sanitation and hygiene service provision in Bandar Lampung, Metro, and Tasikmalaya cities. The focus is on, but not limited to, various providers of on-site facilities for faecal sludge (FS) containment, upgrading, and emptying; various service providers for faecal sludge treatment and disposal (such as IPLTs), and all others that are involved in the Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) service provision chain. Service providers’ preparedness and capacity to cater to market demand, as well as the financial feasibility of the service business models, are to be analysed to get a clear picture of the service on the supply side. The research should be able to address the problems in service delivery and the opportunities for improvement to meet demand, and ultimately to recommend a financially, technically, socially, environmentally and institutionally sustainable sanitation and hygiene service provision for the three cities.
Purpose and Scope
The purpose of this work is to map the sanitation and hygiene services provision on the supply side in those cities, their compliances with relevant standards and legal framework, their feasibility, and the challenges and opportunities faced by these services to meet demand. Due to the different levels of access and safety of the existing sanitation conditions in the three cities, there should be different approach and focus in the mapping of the sanitation and hygiene service provision. At present, among the three cities, Tasikmalaya city has the highest Open Defecation rate and the lowest access to sanitation facilities. Therefore, in case of service providers of on-site facilities, the focus in Tasikmalaya is more on the FS containment and upgrading, whereas in Bandar Lampung and Metro the focus is more on the FS emptying.
The specific scopes of the work are:
- Mapping of the Sanitation and Hygiene Service Provision – Identify all stakeholders and their roles in the faecal sludge (FS) management services supply chain and to what extend do these address (or not) the entire sanitation chain. These include, but not limited to:
- Service providers of on-site facilities for FS containment and upgrading in Tasikmalaya and for FS emptying in Bandar Lampung and Metro
- Service providers for faecal sludge treatment and disposal, such as IPLTs, in the three cities
- Other relevant stakeholders involved in the FSM supply chain in the three cities, if any
- Analysis of Service Compliance
- Compliance with Occupational Health and Safety of FS Containment, Upgrading, Emptying, Treatment, and Disposal Services
- Compliance with Existing Legal Framework
- Compliance with relevant Operation and Maintenance Standards (incl. trainings, SOP, etc.)
- Analysis of Service Provision Business Model – Mapping of the abovementioned service providers in terms of who they are, what they are doing, how much they are charging, what is the actual cost of services, etc. The objective is to estimate the financial feasibility of their services.
- Analysis of Problems in Service Delivery and Opportunities for Improvement – Identification and assessment of the major challenges, problems, opportunities, and recommendations for improvement in the service delivery and quality for each involved in the sanitation & hygiene service supply chain.
Framework and Methodology
In general, primary data collection, including field visits, key informant interviews (KIIs), FGDs, and surveys may be used as relevant. Secondary data collection, such as for the collection of existing standards of occupational health and safety, as well as the existing legal framework, may be performed as relevant.
Market and financial analysis could be used to analyse the service providers’ preparedness, capacity, and financial feasibility in providing safe and sustainable sanitation and hygiene services provision.
