Kancheepuram addresses all components of sanitation
In an endeavour to ensure that no component of sanitation remains unaddressed, the district administration of Kancheepuram, which had previously achieved 100 per cent individual household latrine (IHHL) coverage, is keen to provide access to sanitation to its floating population and effectively manage faecal sludge.
Construction of Community Sanitary Complexes (CSCs) as a part of the ongoing Samudayik Shauchalaya Abhiyan (SSA) is making headway across the country as 17 districts have achieved 100 per cent CSC coverage (at least one geo-tagged CSC in every village).
To provide insights into the various elements of ODF Plus, how it can be measured and the implementation process, the Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation, Ministry of Jal Shakti organised a webinar for State and District officials from across the country.
