“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 (gram panchayats) 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, Government 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.”
