Climate resilience opportunities with faecal sludge management in Fort Portal, Uganda | Research article

This research article is investigating the implementation of the circular economy of sanitation and solid waste management for agriculture programme in Fort Portal, Rwenzori Region of Western Uganda by WASTE. The main programme objective is to strengthen the local circular sanitation economy model for agriculture.

The programme aims to focus on the production of co-compost as their main waste re-use activity. The
‘circular’ aspects of producing co-compost involve the re-use of organic waste and its nutrients by collecting, recycling and applying co-compost in agriculture. Faecal sludge is included to both
manage a piece of the overwhelming human waste management problem as well as enhance regular compost for a nitrogen-rich soil improver for agriculture application.
