SANMAN is a SMART GIS based tool for city sanitation planning. It has been developed in partnership with East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC). The geo-spatial tool helps the Corporation in implementing its mandate under the Swachh Bharat Mission.
Specifically, with the help of SanMan, EDMC now can come up with effective investment and management strategies to manage it’s ‘solid waste’ and ‘public toilets’. The tool highlights areas that are not covered with adequate services as per norms. It also shows suitable locations to make new public toilets, waste collection and disposal points and waste collection routes. This enables EDMC to use its resources to efficiently fill these gaps and keep track of its progress.
One of the key features of the tool is its ease of modifications and use in different contexts. Till date the tool has been successfully replicated for NOIDA Authority to assess the gaps in solid waste collection and disposal system; for North Delhi Municipal Corporation to assess gaps to increase accessibility of the ‘Public Urinals’; and for Agra Municipal Corporation to make solid waste plan for its Tajganj area.
The tool will also suit Municipal bodies of Rourkela, Mathura and Dharamshala to plan their sanitation services.
