Alumni workshop to understand state level progress on FSM in rural areas

Date: September 28, 2022

Rural water and waste team has conducted an online meeting on September 20thto understand the impact of CSE’s capacity building programs on management of faecal sludge in rural areas. The meeting brought in the representatives from Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Meghalaya, Karnataka, and Rajasthan. A total of 42 people registered for the meeting and a total of 40 participants attended. The objective of the meeting was to get an understanding from the alumni how CSE’s training have helped them in making changes in the successful implementation of projects and the policy framework of the state related to faecal sludge management.

We got a very good feedback from the participants. For example, Meghalaya had started IEC activities on safe management of fecal sludge in the state. Jharkhand also explained how they are working on the transportation of the fecal sludge from the rural areas to the urban fecal sludge treatment plants.

A state level score card based on the analysis of feedback from the different states that participated in the meeting. This will help not only in understanding the effectiveness of training program but will give a clear idea of the state-wise progress on the ground.
