This report highlights keys issues and challenges in sanitation for the Jhuggi Jhopri (JJ) resettlement colony of Savda Ghevra in New Delhi, India. It was commissioned by the Centre for Urban and Regional Development (CURE) to help them monitor faecal waste management in the colony.

IRC’s Faecal Waste Flow Calculator is used to:

  • Assess the amount of faecal waste and wastewater produced and disposed in the open environment
  • Visualise where waste is safely managed along the sanitation chain and where there are gaps
  • Provide score cards on the availability of information on plans, budgets, standards, permits, and safety measures  for faecal waste management

Analysis of faecal waste flows shows that 100% of unmanaged faecal waste ends up in the environment.

The report ends with recommendations on engagement with stakeholders and future projections (20 years) on sanitation service levels and wastewater flows.

Abstract

This report highlights keys issues and challenges in sanitation for the Jhuggi Jhopri (JJ) resettlement colony of Savda Ghevra in New Delhi, India. It was commissioned by the Centre for Urban and Regional Development (CURE) to help them monitor faecal waste management in the colony.

IRC’s Faecal Waste Flow Calculator is used to:

  • Assess the amount of faecal waste and wastewater produced and disposed in the open environment
  • Visualise where waste is safely managed along the sanitation chain and where there are gaps
  • Provide score cards on the availability of information on plans, budgets, standards, permits, and safety measures  for faecal waste management

Analysis of faecal waste flows shows that 100% of unmanaged faecal waste ends up in the environment.

The report ends with recommendations on engagement with stakeholders and future projections (20 years) on sanitation service levels and wastewater flows.
