Content - Summary

This library entry contains background documents for a grant that Meena Nair is leading and which is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Further information is also available on the SuSanA discussion forum, see link below.

Short description of the project:
The project aims to improve the governance of SBM and include citizen voices in its implementation and monitoring by addressing both demand and supply side issues. On the demand side, the project visualizes enhancement of the voice and participation of citizens in the SBM. On the supply side, it aims to increase the capacity of all stakeholders to efficiently utilize the resources available to them. The tools that would be used to achieve these objectives include:

1. National Policy Review (NPR) at the National and State (for Odisha and Tamil Nadu in particular) level to understand the implementation process of the SBM, funds allocated and spent, secondary data used therein
2. Citizen Report Cards (CRCs) in selected districts in Odisha and Tamil Nadu to assess the current construction and usage patterns through feedback from users and implementers (for more details about this tool, please visit www.citizenreportcard.com)
3. CRC+ exercises in selected Gram Panchayats in each district to assess fund flow and functional responsibilities handled by implementers
4. Community Score Cards (CSCs) in selected Gram Panchayats in each district to try and improve forums for communities to place their voices and demand accountability.


Goal(s):
To improve governance and accountability of the Swachh Bharat Mission/SBM (previously Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan) in India by including citizen voices

General objectives:
- Increase the voice of consumers in SBM implementation and monitoring sanitation debate in 6 districts of Orissa and 6 districts of Tamil Nadu (demand side)
- Heighten the accountability of service providers to meet SBM targets and associated obligations in 6 districts each of Orissa and 6 districts of Tamil Nadu (supply side)

Specific objectives:
- Raise awareness of the SBM in 6% and 2% respectively of study area population in each of the 2 states—Orissa and Tamil Nadu.
- Strengthen the responsiveness of the service providers by reducing time taken to release funds.
