To support the development of government-funded programs and policies for scaling-up sanitation services in urban areas in India through evidenced-based research
Five research themes will be focused on in this project:
1. Urban governance in India with a focus on Water & Sanitation (WATSAN) structures
2. Policy research and analysis to support non-sewered sanitation adoption
3. Understanding economic, socio-cultural and gender issues in urban sanitation
4. Public accountability and finance issues in urban sanitation programmes
5. Non-conventional finance frameworks for sanitation
Scaling City Institutions for India: Sanitation (SCI-FI: Sanitation): This programme aims to build a stronger evidence base for developing policies, programmes and implementation plans for achieving sanitized cities. Through research, SCI-FI: Sanitation aims to inform and support the formulation and implementation of the Government of India’s urban sanitation programs and investments.
SCI-FI Supplementary Grant, Project Nirmal: The project aims to achieve the demonstrated State Government and Urban Local Body (ULB) commitment towards sanitation service delivery in small cities; capacity development of states and cities for effective sanitation service delivery; increase number of people in pilot cities with access to better sanitation services; improve city-wide planning approaches for sanitation and demonstrate faecal sludge management models.
