Orientation Programme on Urban transportation reforms for clean and liveable cities: November 18 - 20, 2010

CSE organised an orientation workshop on 'Urban transportation reforms for clean and liveable cities' from November 18 - 20, 2010 in New Delhi. Many Indian cities have already begun to develop action plans in response to the air quality and transportation management policies and the reform agenda under the urban renewal mission to achieve clean air and sustainable mobility. These along with the state level transportation and clean air action plans have created the policy opportunity for change. The orientation programme brought together a select group of regulators from South Asian cities for an orientation programme on this critical issue

Their role becomes significantly important considering severe capacity gap with different institution entrusted with the job. Therefore, it is imperative for the financial institutions to conduct a proper due diligence of a project before financing them. This will not only save them from reputational risk but also from financial risk.

    ‘Septage’ is both solid and liquid waste that accumulates in onsite sanitation systems (OSS) e.g. septic tanks. This has three main components – scum, effluent and sludge. It has an offensive odour, appearance and contains significant levels of grease, grit, hair, debris and pathogenic micro organisms. The construction and management of OSS are left largely to ineffective local practices and there is lack of holistic septage management practices.
