Bahl, M.


The National Urban Sanitation Policy (NUSP), launched in 2008 by Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD), Government of India; is based on the 74th Constitutional Amendment Act (1992), aims to strengthen Urban Local Bodies (ULBs). The overall goal of the policy is to transform urban India into sanitised, healthy and liveable cities and towns. Particular focus is given to improvement of hygienic conditions for the urban poor and women through cost-efficient technologies. The NUSP incorporates a paradigm shift and follows integrated concepts in the design and implementation of sanitation strategies. All cities and states are requested to act at par with the NUSP to develop State Sanitation Strategies (SSS) and City Sanitation Plans (CSPs) respectively. These are planning document that creates enabling environment for the implementation of the goals spelt out in NUSP.

As part of its Programme 'Support to the National Urban Sanitation Policy (SNUSP)', Deutsche Gesellschaftfür Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH supports the MoUD in the aforementioned implementation of policy guidelines by supporting the states in preparing their respective State Sanitation Strategies (SSS) and Cities in developing City Sanitation Plans (CSP) in line with the objectives of NUSP. Now, MoUD has reemphasized preparation of SSS under Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM).
