WHY US

Government

ISC Engagement with Government

The sanitation movement in India is unique as the clarion call for urgent action on sanitation

Swachh Bharat is not a government programme rather it’s a people’s movement. Government is an important stakeholder in this mission and brings the following competencies to the sanitation landscape:

  • Policy formulation and creation of enabling frameworks 
  • Providing monetary and budgetary support
  • Program delivery and implementation
  • Infrastructure creation
  • Ensuring welfare of the marginalized communities 

Benefits for the Government

The coalition through its platform and networks could offer the following to the government stakeholders: 

  • Create partnerships and collaborations to support, scale up and improve efficiency of sanitation programmes with a multi-stakeholder approach 
  • Access to new technologies and innovations that could offer local solutions for sanitation 
  • Opportunity for inter-ministerial/departmental convergence on the Swachh Bharat Mission 
  • Creating avenues for leveraging private sector competencies like creating business models, marketing, innovation, etc. 
  • Access to expertise to address the entire value of sanitation i.e. build, use, maintain and treat
