ESG’s approach: Interaction with various sectors
ESG surveyed the needs of various stakeholders to understand their SWM needs.
This helped develop linkages across sectors and their organisations.
Some major target groups included: hotel associations, vegetable market, ganj and kirana markets, pigowners’ association, schools and colleges, NGO’s, media, etc.
Various changes have occurred in the past few years in policies relating to SWM. In addition to Supreme Court orders directing all Class I cities to develop SWM proposals, Ministry of Environment and Forests has legislated Rules for the same
The Government of Karnatka evolved a new policy during July 2004 which proposes the involvement of Women Self Help Groups (SHGs) for collection of solid waste from non-slum regions of urban areas. The slums were to be covered by Pourakarmikas (PKs) hired by the CMC.
ESG was required to train SHGs and PKs, and in addition help CMC develop Management Action Plan through a consultative process. Much depended on how the CMC would deliver on its activities, especially in providing SWM infrastructure and human resources.
When work commenced, the CMC had no maps. To fill this gap, ESG developed comprehensive maps to ward level detail (landuse, contours, physical infrastructure, demographic data, public health information, etc), utilising Survey of India topo-sheets and Raichur Development Authority Land Use maps.
This helped us understand the scale and severity of the problem, and later aided our involvement in helping CMC develop their Management Action Plan.
Raichur’s Solid Waste Management Action Plan (MAP) is critical to the long term sustainable SWM of the city. ESG insisted the MAP should be a public document and created with public input (via public hearings). However, prevailing administrative attitudes have continued to keep this under wraps.
Community Educational Material: Nammuru Chendadooru
ESG completed the docu-film Nammuru Chendadooru in collaboration with Grassroots Media Pvt. Ltd. by November 2004. Based on the “Kinnari Jogi” style of expression, this 18 minute film involves a story that weaves mythology, traditional beliefs, song and theatre in entertaining the audience and communicating the need for segregating waste at source as the basis of sustainable SWM strategy.
The Sutradhara in Nammuru Chendadooru is the motif for a variety of communication material planned to be utilised in engaging with the wide public. This process has been initiated by developing a picture based story book based on the film.
A series of 13 posters developed to communicate various aspects of sustainable SWM in Raichur.
