The partners of the Faecal Sludge Field Laboratory consider this laboratory as an entity which has to evolve to enable the most suitable and sustainable laboratory support for faecal sludge treatment plants during humanitarian aid operations and in the development cooperation context.
Next to the ongoing optimisation and development of the Faecal Sludge Field Laboratory
- the establishment of training centres to ensure a sustainable globally-accessible pool of well trained laboratory technicians
- and the development of internationally accepted standards for the operation of faecal sludge treatment plants during humanitarian aid operations are priorities. These standards are currently considered missing in the overall Faecal Sludge Field Laboratory Concept.
