Objectives

The objective of the project was 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.

Further information

The project buildt on the lessons learnt from the predecessor project in five cities in collaboration with three state governments. It applied these tested solutions and approaches at state level for large up-scaling. At the national level, the project worked together with the Ministry of Urban Development and training institutes. At the state level, it cooperated with selected state governments and regional training institutes and, at the local level, it cooperated 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 worked in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Maharashtra, Telangana and Uttarakhand.

Together with its partners, the project prepared and disseminated guidelines for overall urban sanitation plans suitable for medium-sized cities, prepared quality criteria for investment projects and developed manuals for technical solutions. It capacitated state and city officials to manage sanitation better. With an aim to strengthen the sanitation sector, the project provided 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.
