The India Sanitation Coalition (ISC) and Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) are pleased to present this report of the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM), two and a half years after its launch. This document captures the ideas from ISC partner experiences, as well as e-discussions on the India Chapter of the SuSanA platform. It builds on these with secondary research to present the status of SBM in a comprehensive manner.
This document is based on the inputs received from SuSanA members and secondary research on Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) Rural and Urban. The purpose of this document is to help ISC inform the Government sanitation schemes at the national and state levels, and examine the significance of sustainability, knowledge flows, communityled approaches, sanitation technology, media, and financial innovations. SBM has ushered in changes in the way sanitation is perceived and sanitation programmes are executed. It has got the bureaucratic and political priority required for adequate planning and execution. This has in most places translated into people’s movements for sanitation as well. However, there are many issues and challenges for effective implementation in terms of behaviour change initiatives for promoting toilet usage, quality and sustainability, lack of localized and affordable technology, and lack of inclusiveness. Some of the recommendations are to have an integrated approach, utilizing private sector human resources and expertise for project management and financing, bridge financing, operationalizing RALUs (Rapid Action and Learning Units), and pragmatic district-level planning.
