Recognising city-level capacity limitations for decentralised sanitation planning and implementation in India, the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) appointed the National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) as the anchor organisation for a Sanitation Capacity Building Platform (SCBP) to support cities in their sanitation planning and implementation. NIUA partnered with CAWST,2 a capacity development organisation, to design and initiate the SCBP with the goal of building the capacity of cities and relevant stakeholders working in urban sanitation. This effort is to ensure improved delivery of sanitation services through decentralised approaches, namely Faecal Sludge Management (FSSM). At the programme’s outset, MoUD identified six initial cities in three states to support in delivering FSSM. The six cities include Unnao and Ghazipur in Uttar Pradesh, Proddatur and Gudur in Andhra Pradesh, and Hajipur and Bhagalpur in Bihar.
This report is based on the assessments done for Unnao and Ghazipur in Uttar Pradesh, Proddatur and Gudur in Andhra Pradesh, and Hajipur and Bhagalpur in Bihar in order to guide the development of their capacity building programmes.
