Handbook for Plumbers on Household connectivity

Dear Susana members,
Greetings from New Delhi, India...

GIZ had supported six Indian cities for City Sanitation Plan (CSP) preparation. During the CSP process, it was observed that unrestricted sewage discharge through households is mostly related to improper connectivity to septic tanks / sewerage systems etc. Therefore to achieve improved household level connectivity upgrading the capacity of plumbers is very important.

To address the issue of sanitation at household level, GIZ has developed a Plumbers Handbook on Household connectivity.

The Plumbers Handbook has been developed as a ready reckoner for field use of the plumbers. I had the privilege to be the lead co-author of this publication. Thanks to the GIZ Sanitation team & Knowledge works team for making this possible.

Re: Handbook for Plumbers on Household connectivity

Dear SuSanA members,

Hi......

The "Plumbers Handbook on Household connectivity" has been developed in English and three Indian vernacular languages (Hindi, Marathi & Malayalam). For effective use of the plumbers, the Handbook has been developed in pocket size & is highly durable (tear & water resistant).

The Handbook has been shared with the Municipal plumbers registered with our partner Urban Local Bodies (Shimla, Raipur, Nashik & Kochi). It is envisaged that, this easy to use & understand handbook will help in strengthening the capacities of municipal plumbers & hence will lead to improvement in the quality of household sewage connections (new & existing).

Best greetings.
Rahul

Re: Handbook for Plumbers on Household connectivity

Dear Rahul,

I read through the Plumbers Handbook and just love it! It is clear, concise, and detailed, but simple to read and very charming. An excellent publication that I will return to over and over again, I'm sure.

Will you be doing trainings or some kind of classes to complement the handbook?

Congratulations and all the best,

Elizabeth

Re: Handbook for Plumbers on Household connectivity

Dear Elizabeth,

Thanks a ton for the nice words.

The handbook has been prepared keeping in mind the direct target group (plumbers). As you rightly said, we made sure that the handbook is clear, concise and at the same time detailed for field use. We also tried to keep the language as simple as it could be.

I feel glad to say that we have received positive response from many stakeholders.

Through an iterative process, we (GIZ) have prepared a detailed Manual for Plumbers on Household sewage connectivity and a Training of Trainers Manual on the same subject. The plumbers’ training manual is designed to provide three days refresher training to the plumbers registered with municipalities and it can also be linked with existing plumbing courses in vocational training institutes. GIZ will be supporting its partner states / cities as deemed necessary.

Take care.
Rahul
