Faithful Atusinguza

Faithful Atusinguza is the Senior Officer-Sanitation, leading the implementation of the sanitation element on the KOICA funded project titled “Strengthening Solid Waste (SW) and Fecal Sludge Management (FSM) Capacity of the GKMA”. The main goal of the project is to improve integrated planning for sustainable SWM and FSM in project areas as a means of attaining a green growth transition in Uganda’s cities.

Faithful has over 9 years of experience in development program management and monitoring and a very good understanding of WASH challenges in Low to Middle-Income Countries (LMICs). As a Technical Advisor with the GIZ Water Program, she supported the strengthening of legal and institutional frameworks for regulated sanitation service delivery in Kampala and small towns in Uganda, in close collaboration with Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE) and the private sector. Most recently, she has coordinated multi projects with KCCA and MWE during her service as a consultant. Some key achievements so far have been: – the development of a Sewage and FSM Ordinance for KCCA, establishing minimum standards for onsite sanitation facilities in Kampala and piloting the City-wide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS) Service Assessment and Planning (SAP) tool with MWE to promote data-driven decision making in the sanitation space.

Faithful holds an MSc in Water and Environment Management from the University of Brighton (UK) and a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Health Science from Makerere University (UG).
