Lack of sanitation infrastructure in urban slums leads to devastating effects on health, livelihood, safety and environment. In India, 400,000 children under age five die annually from diarrhoea. With a Global Impact Award, Shelter Associates will conduct digital mapping of urban slums to identify service gaps and inform better infrastructure planning and sanitation development. Shelter Associates will make these findings available online for partners, governments and civil societies to improve the efficiency and transparency of sanitation resources in slums. In three years, Shelter Associates will facilitate the construction of individual toilets to improve sanitation for 40,000 slum residents and create a digital mapping toolkit that can be used by partners to address health and sanitation issues nationally, and influence the National Urban Sanitation Policy in India.
