Sanitation Related Innovations:
- Decentralized and Improved Sanitation Solutions:
Did you know that up to 40% in certain wards of Faridabad along with 2% and 17% of population in Mysuru and Udaipur respectively do not have access to improved sanitation systems. These are mostly households in low-income settlements (or) slums that are not connected to the city’s main water and sewer lines. We are in search of innovations that can provide improved sanitation solution designed to safely collect and process fecal waste for these unconnected households/ communities.

- Improving Public/ Community Toilets:
The Faridabad, Mysuru and Udaipur city governments, like most other cities, open out tenders and contracts for bidders to operate and maintain (O & M) public toilets in prominent public spaces and community toilets in low-income localities. We are in search of innovations that can either reduce the cost-effort of operating and maintaining these toilets (or) significantly improve this toilet - user experiences to eliminate open defecation.

- Sustainable Fecal Waste Treatment:
It is estimated that around 84%, 33% and 95% of all fecal waste generated in the cities of Faridabad, Mysuru and Udaipur respectively are not treated in a safe and sustainable manner before disposal. We are in search of innovations that can help these city governments (or) individual households and communities to sustainably treat their fecal waste before disposal.
