State Sanitation Strategy

As part of the Indogerman cooperation, GIZ’s sanitation project ‘Support to National Urban Sanitation Policy’ (SNUSP ) was requested by Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD), Government of India, to provide technical support to states in preparing quality State Sanitation Strategies which will help a state to plan and implement sustainable development in their sanitation system. As pilot initiatives GIZ-SNUSP together with the Ministry of Urban Developement (MoUD) selected four states for providing technical support in preparing their State Sanitation Strategies (2011-2014). In the second phase Support to National Urban Sanitation Plan II now applies these tested solutions and approaches at state level for large upscaling (since 2014).The four selected states are Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Maharashtra. The overall objective of GIZ support to state sanitation strategy is to have a vital planning instrument for driving sanitation service development and sustenance in states and cities.

The state sanitation strategy will assist in the following:

• Meeting the Service Level Benchmark on Drinking Water Supply, Sewerage, Solid Waste Management, and Storm water drainage.

• Analyze and respond to the state level sanitation situation, challenges and issues.

• Improving City Sanitation Rating and Ranking

• Mobilizing funds through flagship programs such as Swachh Bharat Mission, Smart Cities, HRIDAY, AMRUT for improving overall sanitation sector in the state

• Linkages with performance based grants under 13th and 14th Finance Commission

GIZ and its state-level partners have developed and followed a unique consultative approach for the development of State Sanitation Strategies  that is systematic, stepwise, participatory and owned and driven by partner states. The process has been appreciated and resulted in a systematic, comprehensive and demand oriented State Sanitation Strategy.

Based on the analysis and available evidence covering all the issues in the state sanitation strategy (for Maharashtra, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana) the broad areas of recommendations were given to the states. These recommendations are centered around planning & financial, technical and institutional measures that a state needs to take for achieving the overall goal of Swachh Bharat (Clean India) Mission, the campaign of Government of India for improving the sanitation condition of the country.
