Background
The disposal of huge volumes of untreated domestic sewage from cities and towns is the biggest source of water pollution and environmental contamination. Most Indian cities try to handle the infrastructure demands through centralised systems, which not only require high capital expenditures but also cause high operation and maintenance.
The existing centralised systems are not able to serve the increasing demand. As a complementary option to the centralised approach, a decentralised waste management system can be an effective solution to tackle pollution in urban areas. Moreover, decentralisation helps to increase community participation in the decision-making process, implementation and maintenance.

Further Description / Program

In this context, there is an increasing need for scaling up decentralised approaches for adequate basic needs services. Decentralised wastewater treatment systems have enormous potential in contributing to the development of sustainable environmental sanitation. CDD Society aims to address the need for decentralised solutions by enhancing the capacities of service providers across the country.
