Abstract: Several initiatives have been undertaken by agencies to tackle the second generation sanitation challenge of safe management of faecal sludge. A situation analysis of an on-going initiative identified inappropriate containment at source is one of key problems, with multiple implications for people’s access to decent, safe sanitation and for the environment. Inappropriate containment is the manifestation of the lack of knowledge, guidelines, awareness at the city level and has not been prioritised in the rush to achieve basic sanitation coverage. As a result, urban dwellers constructed intermediate solutions to containment and sludge management which pollute the overall environment. The current study of Faridpur city will shows the impact of inappropriate containment on sanitation and the environment in Faridpur, Bangladesh.
