Delhi, Fecal Sludge Management (FSM)

Project Description

Building on the experience of the CST project, CURE, with the support of WaterAid and BMGF and in partnership with DUSIB and DJB, is seeking to a. scale up the sanitation experience in Savda to more households, b. implement a low cost, decentralized, modular, integrable and scalable Fecal Sludge Management (FSM) system that reaches all of Savda with equitable sanitation experience; c. address the entire sanitation value chain from collection, transportation and treatment, safe disposal and reuse; and d. build capacity of the local service providers – DUSIB and DJB. International Water Management Institute (IWMI) is the technology partner in the project. The plan is to build a community-based, business oriented, sustainable model that shall be operated and maintained by the people of Savda. It is expected that 2000 households will have connected toilets by the end of the project. By working closely with the concerned departments, the project shall; one, create institutional capacity for provisioning of de-engineered, sanitation services that create an equalizing sanitation experience in other low-income communities of Delhi; and two, develop modules for other cities, based on an assessment of the efficiency and appropriateness of the system with regard to performance, cost, community acceptance, economic viability and sustainability.
