Swachh Bharat: Vision to Mission

April 2017 | Environment & Climate Change
To support the political drive towards sustainable sanitation in India, the international network Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) and India Sanitation Coalition has set up a regional chapter for India. The India Chapter serves as a platform for exchange and discussion and links the Indian discourse about sanitation with the global community. As of today, most of the SuSanA members come from India and provide important contributions to the international network.

Based on the inputs received from SuSanA members and secondary research on Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) Rural and Urban, ISC and SuSanA published “Swachh Bharat: Vision to Mission” during the India Sanitation Conclave on 27-28th April 2017

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, and community led 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.
