Across Tamil Nadu
TNUSSP supports GoTN towards successful implementation and scaling up of FSM to promote clean water and sanitation across the state. The programme also looks at creating and strengthening an enabling environment encompassing improved governance mechanisms, behaviour change & communication, capacity building for FSM stakeholders and mainstreaming inclusion.
Across Cities – Trichy
To achieve 100 per cent sanitation goals of the city, TNUSSP has been providing sustainable septage management solutions to Trichy City Corporation. The team’s focus has been on the full cycle of storage, collection, transport, treatment, and safe disposal of fecal sludge.
Across Cities – Coimbatore
Towns of Periyanaicken-Palayam (PNP) and Narasimhanaicken-Palayam (NNP) were chosen to implement FSSM as both towns are non-sewered to achieve total sanitation. The focus has been on skill development of people who work across the sanitation system and provide research-based solutions specific to fecal sludge management.
Across Cities – Karunguzhi
Tamil Nadu’s first FSTP was set up in Karunguzhi Town Panchayat, in Kanchipuram district. Based on a cluster approach, the facility caters to the households in both Karunguzhi and Maduranthakam municipality.
It is a pioneer town in the state moving towards ‘safe sanitation’ by demonstrating improvements across the full cycle.
Across Cities – Other cities
While facilitating improvements across the full cycle of sanitation, TNUSSP recognised that safe sanitation is beyond physical infrastructure provisioning. Hence, the programme looks at initiatives that are across the various stages of the full cycle which include behaviour change & communication, capacity building, governance and inclusion with a focus on vulnerable communities.
Since 2015 TNUSSP has been working towards a 100% sanitation-safe Tamil Nadu. Explore what, where and how TNUSSP has been making a difference, and find out how you can be a part of this too.
