Mobile-Enabled Geographic Information System (GIS) Technology and an Embedded Point-Based Reward System/Application to Track Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) Patterns Among Waste Entrepreneurs

To utilise a mobile enabled Geographic Information System (GIS) technology and an embedded point-based reward system/application to track faecal sludge management (FSM) patterns among waste entrepreneurs and subsequently inform issuing of incentives and subsidies to them. The incentives and subsidies will be issued based on the volume of faecal sludge emptied. The reward system will comprise integration of a point-based incentive system and a micro-loan as well as a non- cash incentive that facilitates day to day business running requirements needed for safe pit emptying.
