WASH Platform Maharashtra

WASH Platform Maharashtra

WASH Corporate Platform-Maharashtra is in place to sustain the open defecation-free stature in the State.

The platform focuses on water, sanitation and hygiene, and how corporates and private sector can contribute to the journey of Sustainable Sanitation.

A joint initiative by the India Sanitation Coalition (ISC) and Samhita Social Ventures, the platform is supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Government of Maharashtra. CEPT University lends knowledge support to the initiative.

Corporate involvement in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) have significantly risen since kick-off of the Swachh Bharat Mission in 2014. The target is big and complex, and corporate funding (and participation) is essential to plug key gaps in the value chain.

The platform supports companies with comprehensive services that enable them to make better decisions in WASH boosting pillars and implement solutions in critical areas like behaviour change communication and faecal sludge management.

Key Pillars

  • Build compendium forum of high impact, effective and sustainable WASH projects
  • Leverage private sector resources and build partnerships between key stakeholders
  • Provide end-to-end support
  • Help scale innovation across the sanitation value chain
