In India sanitation is a state subject.Though implementation and the direct benefits are at the city, core functions like the development of guidelines,distribution of financial resources and partial responsibility for the implementation rests with state level agencies.A State Sanitation Strategy (SSS) is an excellent and crucial policy tool for setting the framework and guiding cities in planning, developing and implementingtheir City Sanitation Plans (CSP).GIZ is supporting five states in preparing their SSS as required under the NUSP. GIZ and state-level partnershave developed and followed a unique consultative approach for the development of State Sanitation Strategies thatis systematic, stepwise, participatory and owned and driven by partner states.
