Sanitation in Alandur : community response energizes work (English)

Alandur Municipality in Tamil Nadu is improving sanitation services to slum dwellers through an inclusive approach that benefits all segments of the township. The effort demonstrates how services can be improved where there is strong political commitment coupled with effective communications, transparency, and partnership with community-based organizations. Nearly 8,350 of the 23,000 households that paid for the service are now connected to a sewerage network (2005). These include 500 slum households from a total of 7,000. A large number (43 percent) of slum dwellers have opted and paid for individual sewerage connections.
