Indian Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) - local government units - have been assigned the responsibility for executing rural water and sanitation. To do this successfully as equal partners with the government and engineers, they need a lot of support over the long term. The government and NGOs who will support them have important roles to play to ensure quality water and sanitation services are provided in the long term in an an equitable manner.

This report is a synthesis of a SuSanA India Chapter Thematic Discussion, which took place from 2 February-10 March 2021 and a follow-up webinar the chapter co-organised with IRC, India Sanitation Coalition and Water For People India and IRC on 4 March 2021.
