A compendium of proven urban sanitation technical solutions for three different settlement types -suburban ward, transforming rural settlement, and greenfield site- in India.
The study assesses the strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities in urban sanitation technologies in India and provides a decision-making support tool for local administration, community action groups and other stakeholders to identify appropriate technologies for various settlement types. The compendium examines various sanitation systems and technologies and provides a decision framework and standards for planners and implementers. Case studies demonstrate the methodology applied to three different settlement typologies.
