Evolution of Urban Sanitation Capacity Development in India.

A brief timeline of the evolution of urban sanitation capacity development in India (attached below).

India is one of the fastest urbanizing countries of the world. There has been much interest in understanding how urban development and specially urban sanitation, has evolved in the last two decades in terms of government programs and priorities, and the evolution of capacity development initiatives during this period.
Strengthening a robust, well funded institutional academia-research-citizens engagement mechanism, should be a capacity development priority for India as we urbanize at a rapid pace in the 21st century. 
Despite huge investment in urban sanitation, our mountains of solid waste dump sites and untreated sewage and septage flowing into our rivers and ground water, is a testimony that time is short.

Re: Evolution of Urban Sanitation Capacity Development in India.

Thank you for this interesting schematic of the evolution of Urban Sanitation Capacity Development in India from 2007 to present.
I am attaching the picture below in order to draw more attention to it:



If someone wants to read up more about what this picture is explaining, which is the best publication or website where they can find this information?

Thanks for posting Elizabeth.

The infographic provides both the trajectory of urban sanitation as well as capacity development trend for India in the last 2 decades.
