The tool (Proof-of-Concept) for platform for integrated sanitation investment planning is supported by funds from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This tool will support city-wide sanitation planning by providing information on sanitation systems through an integrated assessment of technologies and their respective benefits and associated costs and also
• Facilitate an integrated approach to the sanitation investment planning process for Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) in India
• Provide a repository of information on sanitation system options
• Allow decision makers to examine these options considering resource constraints
• Evaluate impact of the sanitation system options through a set of ward and city level indicators
• Illustrate differences in current and improved scenarios enabling informed decision making in the sanitation sector.
• Analyses the impact of different sanitation systems (networked and non-networked), on accessibility, environment, health and cost
• Compiles system and ward data, thereby reducing cost of information collection
• Enables cities to invest resources in a manner that improves city-wide delivery
• Built with an interactive GIS enabled user interface
• Can be used as a capacity building tool.
• Decision-makers in Urban Local Bodies (ULBs)
• Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) and its technical/capacity building departments.
• Government of India (GoI)
• Technology developers to understand the sanitation needs within an urban context
• Technocrats and consultants while proposing different sanitation systems to decision-makers to increase the coverage and access to safe sanitation, especially for the urban poor.
