Opportunity for Team Leader – City Wide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS)

The CWIS Trichy project will be anchored in the Practice Programme at IIHS and is expected to run over a duration of about 3 years.

Trichy, a Tier II city in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, India, has been selected as one of the cities under the City Wide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS) initiative by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The CWIS initiative is globally supported by multiple agencies and organisations including the BMGF and the World Bank. CWIS cities are expected to move towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) for sanitation to ensure safe, inclusive, and financially sustainable sanitation services, and serve as global benchmarks. The Trichy CWIS project will be guided by the urban local body, and delivered by a consortium of partners led by IIHS. While the project aims to improve overall sanitation outcomes in Trichy across the full cycle of sanitation, it will also focus on improvement of service delivery to the poor. The project will also attempt to mainstream sanitation into existing initiatives, showcase innovations and systematically document and share learnings (particularly with a view to enabling replication). Please see the job description for more details about the position and how to apply.
