Communal sanitation solutions for urban slums

2011 - 2016 • Institute for Financial Management and Research (IFMR), Quicksand, project Sammaan

Purpose

To design a new programmatic infrastructure and physical structure that instills a sense of dignity while addressing issues affecting sanitation practices and encouraging community members to stop open-defecating.

Activities

This is an urban infrastructure project that seeks to design and build improved sanitation facilities in the cities of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack in the state of Orissa in India.
It provides a new, holistically re-imagined model for urban slum sanitation facilities in India reviewing:
- Business models
- Architectural designs
- Communication interventions
- And facility operation models.

Countries of activity

Location of main activity

Objectives

Objective 1: To develop an innovative, sustainable, scalable urban community sanitation model which will reduce the incidence of open defecation and improve health among the urban poor in the implementing partner cities of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack.

Objective 2: Create a “toolkit” for successful urban sanitation infrastructure and management interventions based on the implementation and a rigorous evaluation of the project in two cities and disseminate the toolkit broadly through multiple channels.

Objective 3: Engage in advocacy to encourage adoption, scale-up and replication of these innovations beyond our intervention sites and throughout cities in Orissa and India.

Further information

The project is preparing for the construction phase by submitting formal project reports with both the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation and Cuttack Municipal Corporation as well as submitting the required tender documents. Following this, vendors will be vetted for building the facilities. Capacity-building and demand-generation exercises will continue going forward, as the team moves to complete work on the O&M guidelines and corresponding training manual. Additionally, the sewage strategy will be finalized soon. All of this, along with the activities in other workstreams, will be added to the toolkit.
