Shit Flow Diagram Platform

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)

Shit Flow, what?

No, there's no typo here. The German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) is actually working on so-called Shit Flow Diagrams (SFD). These can be used to investigate how excrement flows through a city and how this process can be optimized. Clean water and adequate sanitation are essential for healthy ecosystems and a secure livelihood.

By creating the SFD website, we have helped GIZ bring a simple tool for improving sanitation out into the world.

A first step towards providing adequate sanitation services in urban areas is to monitor the sanitation service chain.

SFD Website

Up-to-date thanks to CMS

The website explains the importance of a regulated medical supply and forwards interested parties quickly to the SFD Generator. When programming the site, we opted for a CMS-based concept so that our customer could adapt the content himself at any time. Thus, the information on the SFD project is always up-to-date and the processes are kept short.
