Housing is a fundamental human need. Unfortunately, one-fifth of the world’s population lives in slums. With rapid urbanisation, large-scale migration is taking place from rural to urban areas in search of livelihood opportunities, adding to the internal population growth of the cities. In the absence of inclusive urban planning, this creates shortage of housing, water, sanitation, health, education, social security and livelihood, leading to dismal living conditions for urban poor.
The overall goal of the Odisha Urban Sanitation Strategy, 2011 on the lines of the National Urban Sanitation Policy (NUSP) of India is to transform urban areas in Odisha into community-driven, totally sanitized, healthy and liveable cities and towns since efficient sanitation services has a profound impact on quality of life of citizens. To attain this goal, safe management of human excreta including its safe containment, transport, treatment and disposal is of utmost importance.
