1 [Module 1] City Sanitation Plan - Relevance and added values
2 City Sanitation Plan - Relevance and added values What is urban sanitation?Status and common threats of sanitation in Indian citiesNUSP and former policy schemes targeting sanitationRationale and added value of a CSPRating of sanitation in your city
3 Sanitation – Definition Safe management of human excreta including its safe confinement, collection, treatment, disposal and associated hygiene-related practices (NUSP).Notes:
4 Sanitation and public health Quiz: Are you aware of the faecal - oral transmission routePrimary barrier e.g.:safe excreta disposal (toilets),protecting water sourceswater handlinghand washing at critical timesfood hygieneSecondary barrier e.g:food hygiene (cover food, wash, cook vegetables before use),avoid barefoot walking,- use slippers,deal with pets & animals with carePThe scheme shows the faecal – oral transmission route of pathogens which can cause severe problems for public and individual health.The four ellipses in the center symbolize four possible transmission paths for pathogens. These can be controlled by various strategies making use of primary and secondary barriers.Assign the following four terms to the correct transmission paths considering the effects of possible primary and secondary barriers:Fingers, Fields, Flies, FluidsSPPSReferences:The economic impacts of inadequate sanitation in India, WSP, 2006SFaecesFoodNew hostPModified & developed (Dabrase, Pramod; Bank, Peter , 2012) after (1)

6 Impacts of inadequate sanitation Human healthGlobal death toll: more than 2.2 million people per year, mostly children under age of 5 years17% of total deaths among children under age of 5In India more than 2,000 children below 5 years die every dayGender aspectsWomen & girls face drudgery & serious health disorders – due to lack and dirtiness of toilets, lack of private places, long waiting timeGirls lose school days, discontinue schoolsHigh rate of crimes and violence against women - when they are out for defecationIndirect impactsContamination and eutrophication of the environment (soils, ground water, water bodies)Reduced ecosystem servicesReduced value of properties,Reduced income from tourismReduced scenic beautyEconomyMore than 2 billions of human hours lost annuallyEconomic costs related to health care expenses = INR 212 billion/yearProductivity loss due to helath problems caused by inadequate sanitation = INR 217 billion/yearNotes:

10 Waters to be managed by urban sanitation Grey water consists of waste water from bathroom, laundry, etc.Black water consists of waste water from toilets. Major difference between grey water and black water is its pollution load (carry diseases causing pathogens) making black water harmful to human beingsStorm water runoff can be polluted / loaded with septic tank overflow, faeces, pet waste, oil, heavy metals, organic pollutants etc.
12 Sanitation scheme in future – ecological sanitation: from linear to closed loop Notes:Source: Water and Wastewater in Asia - The Imperative for New Approaches to Urban Water and Wastewater Management, ADB & Partners Conference, Manila, 12 October, 2010, Paul Reiter, Executive Director, International Water Association
13 Status and challenges for sanitation in Indian cities Source: Centre for Science and Environment (2012): Excreta Matters – A profile oft he water and sewage situation in 71 Indian cities (Citizen’s Seventh Report on the State of India’s Environment)Source: MoUD (GTZ-ASEM Consultation workshop on City Sanitation Plans, April 16th, 2010, New Delhi):between 28-40% of the households are connected to a sewage system, whilst 34-46% rely on often uncontrolled on site disposal,This ends up in safe disposal of human excreta of only 18-52% of Indian households, whilst excreta of 48-82% of the households are disposed unsafe

16 Introduction to National Urban Sanitation Policy (NUSP) VisionAll cities & towns becometotally sanitized, healthy and liveable ,and ensure and sustain good public health and environmental outcomes for all their citizenswith a special focus on hygienic and affordable sanitation facilities for the urban poor and women.Specific goalsAwareness Generation and Behaviour ChangeAchieving Open Defecation Free CitiesAchieving Integrated City-Wide SanitationMOUD, GOI launched a NUSP to address all aspects related to urban sanitation in a comprehensive manner on November 12, 2008.
