From dreams to reality: compendium of best practices in rural sanitation in India
India is experiencing paradigm shift in rural sanitation with the launch of the Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC). Mobilisation, motivation and innovative financial incentives are bringing about positive sanitation and hygiene behaviour changes amongst rural communities. This document seeks to capture successful case studies, success stories, and best practices from States on TSC implementation which need to be highlighted and replicated in other States. This compendium contains the case studies of best practices in achieving total sanitation at different levels, that is, GP/Block/districts. These case studies are about the achievements and the experiences of different situations, institutional models, community mobilisation approaches, supply chain management, capacity building, convergence of various programmes, school sanitation, innovative approaches etc, in different states and the regions.
