Re: Sanitation Capacity Building Platform

Dear Mr. Kapur,

The flyer is interesting. The topic is important for developing countries.

One thing that goes with capacity building is the availability of guidance manuals. Do you have publications on how to solve the sanitation problems of a city?

Re: Sanitation Capacity Building Platform

The presentation is interesting. It is, however, somewhat brief from learning point of view. Are there publications that go with it?

Re: Sanitation Capacity Building Platform

Elisabeth has asked me to share a brief profile of Sanitation Capacity Building Platform(SCBP) so as to facilitate engagement and discussion here.

Let me introduce myself. I am Depinder Kapur and I work with the SCBP Platform, based on Delhi. This is a multi stakeholder platform of agencies promoting decentralised sanitation systems.

For more details of SCBP, please see below.

Title of grant: Sanitation Capacity Building Platform
Subtitle: To build capacity of cities and all stakeholders working in urban sanitation, to ensure improved and decentralized sanitation services
Name of lead organization: National Institute of Urban Affairs(NIUA)
Primary contact at lead organization: Depinder Kapur
Grantee location: India

Start and end date: 1st Oct 2015 to 31st March 2019
Grant type: Programme grant
Grant size: $3.5 million

Short description of the project:

Sanitation Capacity Building Platform (SCBP) lends support to Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), Government of India, by focussing on urban sanitation and supports states and cities to move beyond Open Defecation Free (ODF) status by addressing safe disposal and treatment of human faeces. SCBP is a platform anchored by NIUA and works as a collaborative initiative of experts and organisations committed to the goal of sanitation to support and build the capacity of towns/cities to plan and implement decentralized sanitation.

Goal(s):

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.

Objectives:

Working under the broad aim of strengthening capacity building for decentralised urban sanitation solutions, SCBP has three broad Objectives ;
• Improved awareness, knowledge and skills of State governments and Urban Local Bodies staff, to plan and implement decentralised sanitation solutions
• Institutional knowledge and skills strengthening(of Training Institutes, Academia and Private sector), for supporting national level capacity building
• Evidence based research and advocacy for capacity building to address urban sanitation challenge

Research or implementation partners:

The Platform partners include Centre for Water and Sanitation, CWAST at CEPT University, CDD Society and BORDA, ECOSAN Services Foundation(ESF), Administrative Staff College of India(ASCI)ASCI, UMC, Centre For Policy Research(CPR), iDeck and WASHi.The Platform also engages and supports Nodal AMRUT accredited training institutions, Universities, Research organisations and NGOs.

Current state of affairs:

Biggest successes so far:

Successful collaborative engagement as a platform in India with the most comprehensive collection of knowledge resources on FSSM on our site scbp.niua.org. Supported 4 states with Policy, Technical Support. State level Perspective Building on FSSM. Developing and delivering Training Modules on Decentralised Sanitation solutions.

Main challenges / frustration:

Systemic barriers at institutional level to adoption of FSSM. Hence our capacity building work is both about knowledge creation as well as research and advocacy.
