Content - Summary

This library entry contains background documents for a grant that Meera Mehta and Dinesh Mehta are leading and which is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The purpose of the project is to make cities Open Defecation Free (ODF) and to support the implementation of a Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) Plan. More detailed information is available on the SuSanA discussion forum, see link below in the external links section.

Goal(s):
To bring universal sanitation services across the FSM chain to two small towns in Maharashtra, India and capture the lessons in order to build the capacity of other small and medium cities in the state of Maharashtra and India to implement similar activities.

Objectives:
Within 3 years, the objective for this project is to demonstrate a process for small and medium towns to achieve universal sanitation services, including access to toilets, as well as safe collection, conveyance, treatment and disposal of waste, with private sector participation for operation and financing. In the course of this project, regulatory frameworks and policies are going to be developed that will overcome the barriers to sanitation service provision in small and medium towns through three outcomes:
- Promote PPP for safe collection and treatment of faecal sludge through decentralized systems
- Promote elimination of open defecation in cities through universal access to ‘own’ toilets
- Engage private players in the provision of sanitation services, and build the capacity of ULBs to manage their performance
