The impact of COVID-19 on sanitation behaviour in lower-income settings

Appropriate hygiene behaviours are our best defence against the COVID-19. We are all encouraged to stay home and wash our hands. But, how does this goal interact with the dominant message of the Swachh Bharat mission: use toilets. The pandemic may reverse the impressive sanitation behaviour change achieved by SBM as many will now stop using public toilets. This impact will be the largest among the most vulnerable populations, which may have limited access to toilets of their own. This panel discussion will assess the impact of the pandemic on the gains achieved by the Swachh Bharat Mission.

Online Training for Consultant Capacity Development for Urban Sanitation Services (ConCaD)

Policy makers and planners across the country are increasingly realising that conventional sewerage is not the ideal solution to manage liquid waste in cities and towns. Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) and other decentralised options are increasingly being accepted to solve liquid waste management (LWM) issues. In this context, it becomes important to look at how various decentralized solutions (including FSM) can address a city’s LWM needs in an inclusive manner. In order that cities are able to do so, there is a need for professionals working with cities/towns across the country to be aware of the basic tenets of inclusive as well as multi- solution planning for addressing LWM.
