Providing technical support in the areas that include systems for managing faecal sludge, operating models for public toilets and systems for non-conventional and decentralised wastewater management
The project "Support to National Urban Sanitation Policy (SNUSP) – II", seeks to support the Indian government in implementation of its sanitation improvement schemes and missions such as National Urban Sanitation Policy (NUSP), Swachh Bharat Mission (Clean India Mission) and Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT).

The objective of the project is to support the Indian government in making all Indian cities and towns totally sanitised, healthy and livable and ensuring sustainable improvement in public health and environment with special focus on the urban poor and women.
The project builds on the lessons learnt from the predecessor project in five cities in collaboration with three state governments. It applies these tested solutions and approaches at state level for large up-scaling. At the national level, the project is working together with the Ministry of Urban Development and training institutes. At the state level, it is cooperating with selected state governments and regional training institutes and, at the local level, it is cooperating with medium-sized cities, their administrations and elected representatives. This three-tier approach makes local solutions replicable, enables them to have a broad impact and promotes the vertical exchange of knowledge. The project is working in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Maharashtra, Telangana and Uttarakhand.
Together with its partners, the project prepares and disseminates guidelines for overall urban sanitation plans suitable for medium-sized cities, prepare quality criteria for investment projects and develop manuals for technical solutions. It capacitates state and city officials to manage sanitation better. With an aim to strengthen the sanitation sector, the project is providing technical support in the areas that include systems for managing faecal sludge, operating models for public toilets with focus on women health & safety and systems for non-conventional and decentralised wastewater management.
