Divisional Level WASH-CCES Coordinator, Indore and Ujjain Division
India declared Open Defecation Free status in urban and rural areas in October 2019 under the ambitious Swachh Barat Mission (SBM); however, sustaining the behaviours of ODF has continued to be a big challenge since then. The latest National Family Health Survey (NFHS) round enumerates the big challenge where the country's access to improved toilets in rural areas is marked at 70% despite the declared ODF status. In rural MP, this figure is limited to 60% only, posing the challenge of incomplete access, defunct toilets, inadequate use and sustainability of behaviours. Identifying the challenge, the Government of India has rolled out the second phase of SBM, focusing on achieving the ODF plus status outlining 4 basic components viz. ODF-Sustainability, Solid Waste Management (Including Plastic Waste and GOBAR Dhan), Liquid Waste Management and Faecal Sludge Management. In Madhya Pradesh, as part of the SBM 2.0, the Government of MP launched the dedicated campaign to ensure ODF Plus status for the villages, so far over 49,000 villages have achieved ODF-plus status, out of which 28095 villages are in the model category. Still sustained operation and maintenance systems and achieve model ODF+ category for the remaining 20000 villages remains as challenge. UNICEF, being the continuous partner of the SBM, supported state SBM(G) intensively on institutional strengthening, capacity building and monitoring frameworks to accelerate the implementation. In addition, in 2023, UNICEF supported the Urban Affairs and Development Department to strengthen Faecal Sludge and Septage Management (FSSM) in urban areas, focusing on key building blocks and co-creating the model of success in two ULBs. UNICEF, in consultation with the department, will focus in 2024 on scaling the demonstrating safely managed sanitation with streamlining operation and maintenance, integrating climate resilience and gender transformative approaches under the National Flagship programme through System strengthening, Capacity Building to adopt and promote the cleanliness in rural and urban Communities and Institutions.
Following the big movement on ensuring improved access to sanitation, the Government of India launched the Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM), which aimed to provide safe drinking water of prescribed quality and quantity on a regular and long-term basis to every rural household in the country by 2024. UNICEF is intensively supporting the Public Health and Engineering Department (PHED), Madhya Pradesh, to accelerate access to Functional Household Tap Connections (FHTCs) in Homes and Institutions, focusing on the building blocks of institutional strengthening, capacity building, monitoring and knowledge management. UNICEF’s focus of the support has been to strengthen the Community-Based water supply systems, thus scaling up the Village Action Planning and District Action Planning process, involvement of community-based structures and quality assurance mechanisms to facilitate the community ownership of drinking water schemes. In addition, the water quality monitoring system (WQMS) has been strengthened through PHED Labs by national accreditations and the establishment of standard protocols. Over 50 such Labs have been NABL Accredited, facilitating the PHED districts to scale up uniform water quality protocols. JJM rolled out in Madhya Pradesh with a baseline FHTC coverage of 11.07% during August 2019. As of November 2023, 6586272 (58.72%) households have gained access to FHTCs.
