The GSF-supported programme is in final stages of closure. A survey to assess the sustainability of its outcomes is planned for the first quarter of 2018.
WSSCC continues its engagement in India through an arrangement where a dedicated unit (India Support Unit – ISU) provides technical support to the Government of India’s Swachh Bharat (Clean India) Mission, with particular emphasis on sustained sanitation and hygiene outcomes and the rights of marginalized and vulnerable people.
Background : The GSF-supported programme in India was designed as a catalyst for large-scale change by demonstrating effective behaviour change approaches to help tackle the enormous sanitation challenge in India. NGOs, private sector organizations and state networks were engaged as implementing partners in targeted blocks and districts in the states of Assam, Bihar and Jharkhand. Partners were supported to effectively utilize funds for collective behaviour change, infrastructure and other sanitation services. The programme aligned to the Swachh Bharat Mission, aimed at universal sanitation coverage by 2019.Find out more
