SuSanA India chapter session "Towards ODF+ Urban Maharashtra" at SANIVATION on 18-19 November 2017, in Pune, India - presentations and recordings available

Dear all,

This year on 18-19 November, to mark the World Toilet Day, the Ecosan Services Foundation is organising an event in Pune called Sanivation 2017. ESF is a key member of the SuSanA India Chapter.

The two-day programme will have fun events and seminars on sanitation. A summary of the programme is given below. You can read more on the website, www.sanivation.in . The five events planned are
• Urgent Run : A marathon for creating awareness related to water and sanitation
• Udyama : B-Plan competition for the Sanipreneurs
• Nirmalikaran : Making a sani-plan for the campus
• Prasadhan : Encounter with a public toilet (a photo-story competition)
• Kalpayita : T shirt design competition
I am writing to request all interest SuSanA members to participate in this in a big way.

As a contribution to the SuSanA India Chapter we are planning a three hour discussion on “What next after ODF Urban Maharashtra”. Recently the state government declared all urban areas as ODF. This session will look at the situation on the ground and suggest what can be done to consolidate gains and next steps.

More information will follow soon.

Regards
Nitya

Re: UPDATE: SuSanA India Chapter Session at SANIVATION on 18 November 2017, in Pune, India

Towards ODF+ Urban Maharashtra
Pune, 18 November 2017
2:30 PM to 5:30 PM


The Maharashtra State government has recently declared all cities to be open defecation-free. Under the Swachh Maharashtra Mission, started in 2015, the state had set out to achieve this by 2018, but has reached its goal earlier. As per the Government of India’s norms, this means all households have toilets and nobody defecates in the open.

Ecosan Services Foundation, the India Sanitation Coalition and the SuSanA Secretariat are organising a seminar to present and analyse this achievement. Based on this, it will discuss ways to move to the next level to make all towns ODF+. This entails consolidating gains, safely and effectively collecting solid and liquid waste, faecal sludge management, and ensuring systems are in place and adequately resourced.

The seminar will present alternatives to the conventional approaches of pipes, pumps and plants for handling the rapidly-growing volumes of solid waste, sewage and faecal sludge that accompany urban growth.
