ODF+, ODF++ and sustainability of sanitation

To develop a Social Behaviour Chanage Strategy in a City what should be the processes? May any one have concept note , process guidelines etc.

SBCC that may address effective solid waste management to sustain in the city and also faecal sludge management and other aspects of environment sustainability.

Resp. Sujoy sir,

I completely agree with you. 1st generation school goers certainly holds the baton as entry point to community, especially tough nuts. Here I see need of convergence as a strategic significance at state level. Swachhagrahi should be encouraged to visit schools. Once streamlined at top, it can then be pursued to be demystified at district level as part of rolling work plan. Child cabinets at school with other students can observe village sanitation status & OD incidents (open defecators) and with advocacy support from Swachhagrahi CC should reach out to village meeting presenting their observation. It will bring shame as well as concern to dwellers.

Dear Members,

To develop a Social Behavior Change Strategy in a City the processes, as indicated, suggest may be initiated from Edu institutions, schools, colleges and campuses.
The campuses could assess and carry out the doable concepts, as given in the attachment and build it up from there, please.

well wishes,

Hallo. My thinking is that you might need to have two seperate strategies one for solid waste management and the other one for FSM considering that these are two broad topics with different dynamics though they might share some common aspects. You will then need to startbby understanding the current practices related to the two including the challenges being faced and this can be through a baseline or KAP study. You then need to prioritize the practices or behaviour you need to address since youncant solve every problem. You will then do a behaviour determinant study to inderstand why people or institutions are behaving the way you would have identified in the initial assessment. For this you can use a number of behaviour change theories to guide you e.g the health belief model, RANAS, BCD etc. From this you will then decide on how to address the identified determinants and depending on your target group this can be through advocacy, social or comunity mobilisation, IPC among other strategies. This whole process you do with your stakeholders and you agree on the implementation plan then you go. You can also see the proceed precede planning model by Green and Kreuter
