After a decade of launching the Total Sanitation Campaign, India has seen significant successes in terms of the sanitation coverage, creating open defecation communities/GPs and solid and liquid waste management. Thousands of success stories have emerged across the country while still there are many challenges in making the entire rural India Nirmal and sustaining the changes achieved. As part of advocacy and capacity building through knowledge sharing, Govt of India with assistance from Water and Sanitation Program has brought out this document by compiling various best practices in achieving total sanitation at different levels. The main objectives of the assignment are (a) to identify and document the best practices in implementing rural sanitation programme at district/block/GP level and creating and sustaining ODF status (b) draw lessons for replications throughout the country by disseminating the best practices to achieve sustainable total sanitation. Contents of the compendium: This compendium contains the case studies of best practices in achieving total sanitation at different levels, that is, GP/Block/districts. These case studies are about the achievements and the experiences of different situations, institutional models, community mobilisation approaches, supply chain management, capacity building, convergence of various programmes, school sanitation, innovative approaches etc, in different states and the regions.
