The Swachh Bharat Mission has made tremendous progress towards the government’s goal of an open-defecation free India by October 2019. Over 9.5 crore toilets have been built and 30 states have been declared open-defecation free. How can we build on this progress and achieve safely-managed sanitation for all?
To address this question, the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie), in partnership with the Research Institute for Compassionate Economics, has been supporting an evidence programme to identify effective approaches for improving latrine use in rural India. At the Promoting latrine use for Swachh Bharat conference, research teams will share the results and policy implications of recently completed impact evaluations in Bihar, Gujarat, Karnataka and Odisha. These evaluations examined the impact of low-cost, innovative, behavioural science-driven interventions to promote latrine use. We will also share our insights from a unique latrine use measurement study. Stay tuned for more details.
We will keep updating this page with more details about the event. You can also follow the conversation on Twitter, use #latrineusematters or follow @3ieNews.
