Re: Discussions about my PhD work (hoping to complete by early 2022): Planning city-wide FSM services in small towns in India

Thank you Prof. Luthi for pointing out this useful set of papers. I've already referred to a few in the paper I shared earlier in this thread.

I am getting to like the sanitation city-scape framework as it helps put sanitation in perspective from demand and supply sides. I am curious to know if you agree with this view? 


Also wondering if you'd agree with the authors about leaving out 'socio-cultural acceptance' from the enabling environment framework introduced by CLUES and used in a few studies by Sandec? 

Regards

Hi Paresh,
Sorry for responding late in your thesis.
Thanks for sharing the abstract on Enabling Environment Framework that you put into practice and discovered some shortfalls in application/explanation of reality on ground in 2 cities of India.

A Political Economy Framework I believe will better explain the failure of application of FSM solutions in all the cities of India, including Kerala cities(where it is clearly more political than economic) and Gujarat(where it is clearly political and economic).
Depinder Kapur is a Senior Fellow at Shiv Nadar University, Delhi. He has lead the Sanitation Capacity Building Platform(SCBP) of National Institute of Urban Affairs learning, research and advocacy on decentralized and non sewered sanitation( scbp.niua.org). His professional engagements have been with AKRSP(Program Officer Forestry), SPWD(Sr. Program Officer), CARE(Director NRM), Oxfam(Program & Advocacy Director), WaterAid India(Country Head) and WSSCC(National Coordinator) and as an independent consultant.

Dear Pareshji n Depinder Sir.
Any new intervention needs to firstly be on implementation and smothering or modification happening on regular basis.
There will never be a perfect field apt to take care of it all.
Be it be setbacks due to political, administrative,  commercial angle, all need to be attended and kept in order
Keep up the task of implementation on and in regular mode and duly sustained.
All the best for Services to communities..
