Introducing National Institute of Urban Affairs from India: A new partner organisation of SuSanA



We would like to welcome National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) from India as a new SuSanA partner organisation!

The following text is taken from their application form and was written by the partner organisation themselves.

Description and Activities in Sustainable Sanitation:
National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) is a premier institute for research, capacity building and dissemination of knowledge for the urban sector in India. It conducts research on urbanization, urban policy and planning, municipal finance and governance, land economics, transit oriented development, urban livelihoods, environment climate change and smart cities. The institute was set up to bridge the gap between research and practice, and to provide critical and objective analyses of trends and prospects for urban development. NIUA has assisted in policy formulation and programme appraisal and monitoring for the Ministry of Urban Development, state governments, multilateral agencies and other private organizations. It contributed to the National Commission on Urbanisation, participated in drafting the 74th Constitutional Amendment of 1992, prepared the Draft National Urban Policy and other documents for the roll out of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM). It also guided the discourse on municipal finance by framing the Model Municipal Law. Vision Promoting integrated solutions for urban India. Mission To develop new research and expertise for supporting effective innovations in the urban sector and their dissemination through knowledge exchange, training and capacity development. Sanitation Capacity Building platform (SCBP) is designed to support and build the capacity of town/cities to plan and implement decentralized sanitation solutions. The platform facilitates knowledge and experience sharing among cities on decentralized sanitation to accomplish national missions: Swachh Bharat Mission, AMRUT, Smart Cities Mission and Namami Gange Programme. The Platform supports Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), Govt. of Indias focus on urban sanitation. It assists states and cities to move beyond open defecation free status by addressing safe disposal and treatment of human faeces. SCBP is a knowledge platform on decentralised urban sanitation. With an overload of information on the net, this site provides a library of important government orders and reports, training modules and advocacy documents on decentralised urban sanitation.
