Moving towards Climate resilient WASH services

April 2024

This project, initiated by CWAS in three cities of Maharashtra, is supported by HSBC through a CSR grant. It aims to implement improvements across the WASH service chain to achieve “Climate Resilient WASH services”.  Key ideas for energy transition include use of solar energy for operating water/wastewater networks, treatment plants and electrification of suction trucks. Further reduction in emissions is envisaged through carbon sequestration by urban forests through reuse of treated waste. The project also focuses on vulnerable and marginalized communities through a citywide inclusive sanitation approach which focus on equitable access to services, livelihood development and gender empowerment.
