Abstract: Collection and disposal of human excreta present serious sanitation problems in most low-incomeg countries’ cities. Urban on-plot sanitation(OPS) focuses more attention on the construction of facilities than managing their contents. However, the need forfaecal sludge(FS) collection and disposal in sustainability of urban OPS management for low-income countries has been clearly demonstrated in the literature. Expert and professional feelings express lack of capacity to deliver acceptable FS emptying and transport services. What is unclear is how capacity development should be executed in order to effectively address capacity concerns for FS emptying and transport. This paper therefore, tries to espouses the capacity development concerns that need considering in urban FS emptying and transport and offer some suggestions about how to tackle some of them.
