Urban sanitation has emerged as a focus area in Gujarat in the last decade. The Government of Gujarat (GoG) declared the year 2005 as the ‘Urban Year’ to bring focus to urban development issues in the state, and foster organized development of infrastructure in cities. This was in alignment with the launch of Government of India’s Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) that provided an impetus to states and cities to undertake large-scale urban improvements. The JNNURM brought central funding to four large cities in the State (Ahmedabad, Surat,Vadodara, and Rajkot). A large proportion of this was utilized for augmenting water supply and sewage infrastructure, and improving habitat conditions in slum communities under the Basic Services for Urban Poor (BSUP) sub mission. The State Government strengthened its institutional capacity to implement the program by forming the Gujarat Urban Development Mission. In addition to implementing the federally funded programs, GoG also launched state level initiatives including the Nirmal Gujrat Shuchalaya Yojana (for improving toilet coverage) and the Swarnim Jayanti Mukhya Mantri Shehri Vikas Yojana (SJMMSVY) for financing and constructing Infrastructure facilities like internal roads, streetlights, city bus services, water supply and sewerage systems.
