About CDD Society

The Consortium for DEWATS Dissemination (CDD) Society is a not-for-profit organisation working in the field of decentralised basic need services across India. Decentralised solutions for wastewater treatment, water and energy supply, solid waste management and urban sanitation planning are successfully promoted for the past ten years.


Today an estimated two billion people in the world do not have access to ‘adequate’ sanitation facilities. Indian cities generate 33,212 million litre of sewage per day (mld) but can treat only 6,190! The disposal of such huge volume of untreated domestic sewage from cities and towns is the biggest source of water pollution and environmental contamination in India.

In this context, there is an increasing need for scaling up decentralised approaches for adequate basic needs services. Decentralised wastewater treatment systems have an enormous potential in contributing to the development of sustainable environmental sanitation. The Consortium for DEWATS Dissemination (CDD) Society aims to bridge the gap by enhancing the capacities of service providers across the country.


The objective of this training programme is to introduce and impart engineering skills to professionals for designing and implementing DEWATS
