3 POVERTY AS A CONCEPT Amartya Sen’s capability approach: Inadequate command over economic resources (work generated income)Insufficient command over publicly provided goods and services (sanitation, housing, health, education, etc.)Inadequate command over or access to the formal or informal institutions supposed to support the individualsPoverty constitutes a denial of human rights.(UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, Statement on Poverty, 2001)
4 POVERTY AS A CONCEPTA human condition characterized by sustained or chronic deprivation of the resources, capabilities, choices, etc. necessary for the enjoyment of an adequate standard of living.
5 POVERTY REDUCTION STRATEGIES Universality and IndivisibilityEquality and Non-DiscriminationParticipation and InclusionEmpowerment of Poor PeopleAccountability and the Rule of LawObligation of International Cooperation- Human rights apply everywhere and can be invoked by everyone.Implementation of all human rights (civil/political AND esc-rights) is relevant for poverty reduction.A human rights approach to poverty and to poverty reduction requires a translation of the poverty concept into rights of people and obligations of states and other actors. People as active right holders.Poor people are often victims of discriminatory treatment: on the basis of birth, property, national or social origin, gender. There may be a need for special measures to improve their situation.- Discrimination affecting persons living in (extreme) poverty must be punished as a violation of human rights.Persons (or their representatives) living in poverty have the right to participate in all activities which concern them, particularly programs for the eradication of poverty.Empowerment means: claiming one’s rights and being able to participate effectively in decision-making processes. This means basically exercising one’s civil and political rights.Duty holders should act on the basis of the law and democratic governance and may be held accountable before political and legal bodies. Accountability mechanisms include: court cases, Ombudsperson institutions, parliamentary processes and international human rights monitoring procedures.Progressive realization means that some rights must get priority in terms of allocation of resources and policy measures taken. These include the core obligations providing for minimum essential levels of basic services, such as minimum food packages, basic health services, basic shelter and basic education.

17 NORTH SINDH URBAN SERVICES CORPORATION NSUSC established under the Companies Ordinance 1984 initially comprised of six secondary cities of northern cluster (Sukkur, New Sukkur, Rohri, Khairpur, Shikarpur, and Larkana). of Sindh Province. Now Ghotki and Jacobabad have also been included in northern cluster.Instead of having different service delivery system at each TMA level, NSUSC now provides the municipal services of water supply, solid waste management and waste water management in the participating cites.
18 NORTH SINDH URBAN SERVICES CORPORATION NSUSC as a single service provider promises (i) economies of scale, (ii) introduce new skills and management, (iii) and increase focus on operations, maintenance and financial management.
19 WHAT SERVICES WE DELIVERY TO URBAN POOR? Wateradequate Quantity – Enough Water to meet 1million people in North Sindh Cities including urban poor , improves hygiene conditions.More Coverage – Reaching unreached poor , balancing the equity and equalityBetter Quality – Safe to drink - Eliminate water related diseases among poor.Continuity – all time access to water a-basic right
20 CREATING WATER SOURCE QUANTITY COMES FIRST Sukkur water intake project to meet 1million peoples’ water demand till year 2040
21 4/13/2017PROJECT BACKGROUNDThe existing main municipal water supply of Sukkur city and part of New Sukkur is provided through two conventional water treatment plants (WTPs) at Bunder Road WTP and Numaish Gah WTP.The source of raw water supply for these two plants is an intake pumping station(IPS) located on the right bank of the River Indus just across the road from the Bunder road WTP and at a distance of about 3 km from Numaish WTP.Sukkur and New Sukkur are suffering from Water Supply problems, particularly during periods when the gates of the Sukkur Barrage are opened for maintenance.Scarcity of drinking water thus is badly felt by general public and by the business community and prolong unavailability of water from River Indus during dry season invariably lead to very serious protests by the residents.
22 4/13/2017PROJECT BACKGROUNDThe Existing intake is not ideally located for several reasons:It is located on the bank of the River Indus and may in extreme conditions be subject to flooding.It is located downstream of untreated waste water outfalls which dispose of about one third of the total waste water flow of the city.The raw water quality of River Indus is highly turbid throughout much of the year which causes major problems and expenses in its treatment.At certain times of the year the level of River Indus falls to a point that river bed dries up completely at the location of existing intake pipes.There is a strong probability that in the near future the low water level of Indus will frequently fall below that of the intake pipes, which will result in failure of the municipal water supply.Pond Color indicates excessive contamination (Period 14th to 19th Nov 2011)

36 MUNICIPAL SERVICES UNDER TMAs ProblemsPrior to SCIP, defunct TMAs were responsible for provisioning and regulating of municipal services of water supply, water waste management, and solid waste management.Water supply distribution other than integrated systems maintained by or on behalf of the City District;Sewerage system other than an integrated system maintained by or on behalf of City District excluding sewerage treatment and disposal;Solid waste collection and conveyance to transfer stations designated by the Town but excluding treatment and disposal of waste.Lack of infrastructure and equipment to meet the demands of expanding population, poor and deteriorating asset condition and the lack of sufficient, qualified staff.Disorganized service delivery system for the assigned services in the cluster.Disintegrated water supply and waste water management responsibilities and authorities. Hence, no effective monitoring systems in place to determine quantity and quality of the servicesLack of planning in designing subprojects; no maps of existing infrastructure.Data on service coverage for the urban populations outside Karachi is poor, but piped-water access is estimated at less than 50% and the piped water is frequently contaminated.No sanitary landfills to dispose off solid waste.Lack of coordination on infrastructure development between TMAs and provincial line departments such as Public Health Engineering Department
37 MUNICIPAL SERVICES UNDER SCIP Sindh Cities Improvement Investment Program (SCIP) is ADB assisted US$ 400 million infrastructure and service delivery reform program which aims to improve water supply, wastewater management, and solid waste management (SWM) services in participating 20 secondary cities through establishment of government-owned , professionally managed Urban Services Corporations ; urban sector reforms and investment in water supply, wastewater and solid waste management infrastructure.NSUSC aggregate participating TMA's Water supply, Waste Water and Solid Waste Management operation in a single institution to leverage economies of scale, introduce new skills and management, and increase focus on operations, maintenance and financial management.Terms of ReferenceEnhancing operational efficiency, accountability, project planning(Master Planning, feasibility Studies, Sub-Project assessments, Mapping, Baseline surveys), management and implementationImproving water supply and sewerage infrastructure and systems in the eight urban towns in North Sindh.Improvement in secondary solid waste collection system and sanitary disposal(landfill sites, Primary & Secondary collection) of NSUSC region.Improving O&M and delivery of services through organizational improvement & operational & transition support funding.
