Work Overview

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) entered into a partnership with Bijnor Nagar Palika Parishad (BNPP) to support in implementation of action plan/strategies with a focus on effective Faecal Sludge & Septage Management, as listed in the City’s Sanitation Plan (CSP) endorsed by the City Sanitation Task Force (CSTF)’ in February 2019.

CSE supports municipal functionaries to plan and implement reforms for achieving effective FSSM and city-wide sanitation by facilitating the convergence of various national and state policies, plans, programmes and project implementation showcasing improvements across the urban sanitation value chain – containment, emptying, disposal, treatment and reuse/recycle, together with river pollution abatement.




Government Advisory recognises the importance of SFD and CSPs

CSE has been advocating the use of SFDs for understanding the sanitation situation of the cities and then developing city sanitation plans based on the understanding of sanitation status for quite some time now.
