PROJECT SUMMARY

Decentralized sanitation system

In underdeveloped settlements, a lack of sanitation is one of the major problems. By applying an additive strategy, this project in a resettlement area of Savda Gherva significantly improves hygiene and strengthens social cohesion within the local community by involving the residents throughout the process. A pilot project commenced in 2012 to provide off-grid sanitation to more than 1,500 people.
