Webinar On Integrated Wastewater And Septage Management (Iwwsm) - Lessons From Kerala; 22nd March 1.30 - 4.15 pm

(Posted on behalf of Rudresh Sugam)

India’s approach to the provision of sanitation services has now shifted to efficient and safe management of the entire sanitation service chain. On-site sanitation systems are going to be an integral part of the sanitation chain and any intervention without considering them is not likely to succeed. A shift in approach from linear to circular economy is also desirable for financially viable and sustainable wastewater management. Municipalities and parastatal bodies in India are confronted with the challenge of identifying innovative yet cost-effective solutions for treating wastewater and septage. There is an emerging need to address new demands and challenges, which would mean revisiting existing state planning and regulatory frameworks for improved provision of sanitation services.

Kerala, as many other states in India, is currently struggling to efficiently manage the sanitation service chain. The sewerage network hardly covers 14% of total urban population. Institutions responsible for wastewater management are unable to handle the issues due to lack of skills, capacity, funds as well as public support. Recognising the challenges and the need to provide state-level guidance on wastewater management regulations and program planning, the Government of Kerala, in collaboration with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), has developed comprehensive ‘Integrated Wastewater and Septage Management Guidelines’ (IWWSM) in support of national, state and local level acts, regulations and guidelines. The guidelines - prepared after multiple rounds of consultations with sanitation technical committee, comprising experts from several departments - provide a coherent framework for envisaging interventions to bring about an affordable, sustainable and efficient sanitation service provision across the state.

This webinar intends to disseminate the key elements of guidelines, deepen its engagement with practitioners and experts from across the globe. The webinar envisages broadening the knowledge base on planning, management and O&M of the entire sanitation system.
