The Roundtable takes place on 12 March 2013 at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi.
One of the objectives is to develop a national sustainability framework for action that will help anchor IRC’s India country programme in the next three to five years.  The framework will be based on the identification of the determinants of sustainable service delivery in India and the prioritisation of the key components.

IRC brings in its regional and global WASH sector experience of more than four decades, in particular from the Triple-S (Sustainable Services at Scale) initiative and the WASHCost programme, which introduced a life‐cycle costs approach (LCCA).

The Roundtable will review a series of innovative think pieces, policy briefs developed by national experts and a discussion note on key WASH sector challenges to sustainability in India.

Mr. Pankaj Jain IAS, Secretary, Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation, Government of India (GoI), will inaugurate the Roundtable, which will be presided over by Dr. Mihir Shaw, Member Planning Commission, GoI. Roundtable participants include key high level sector stakeholders representing national and state governments, donors and multilaterals, research and capacity building institutes and the non-governmental sector.

The programme is supported jointly by IRCs Triple-S initiative and IRC’s South Asia Regional Programme.
