The goal of this technical assistance assignment was to provide support to the emergency WASH sector and local administration, regarding sanitation and faecal sludge management, with focus on value—recovery in emergency settings, in order to sustainably improve the living conditions of displaced populations and their hosting communities.

The present manual “Sampling for Faecal Sludge & Other Liquid Wastes in Emergency Settings” is a summary of the methodologies and applications tested during a liquid waste characterization study implemented by the UPM team in Cox’s Bazar between October 2018 and April 2019.

The content of this manual has been used, in particular, during two on-site trainings targeting WASH & humanitarian response professionals: 1) Training Workshop on Compliance and performance monitoring of Faecal Sludge Treatment Plants (FSTP), in October 2019 in Cox’s Bazar and 2) Faecal Sludge Sampling Training Workshop In Zahle, Lebanon in June 2019, organized in cooperation with UNICEF Lebanon.
