Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) entered into a partnership with Department of Urban Development (DoUD), Government of Uttar Pradesh for ‘Support foreffective Septage Management in Uttar Pradesh’ in January 2018. CSE agreed to co-operate with DoUD to provide support for improvement in urban sanitation across the sanitation value chain in state-supported programmes, and provide technical support to select cities in Uttar Pradesh.

CSE shall support state functionaries and ULBs plan and implement reforms for achieving effective septage management 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.

CSE has set-up a Programme Support Unit (PSU) in Lucknow to support facilitate and handhold state and city-level agencies in planning, creating operating guidelines and enabling frameworks, as well as designing and executing Faecal Sludge and Septage Management (FSSM) practices in cities across the state of Uttar Pradesh.

CSE will build capacities of state officials, decision makers and other stakeholders involved in the implementation of city, state and national level sanitation programme. This would include conducting field exposure visits for state-level officials to explore good management practices.
