  2. 2. ESG’s approach: Interaction with various sectors <ul><li>ESG surveyed the needs of various stakeholders to understand their SWM needs. </li></ul><ul><li>This helped develop linkages across sectors and their organisations. </li></ul><ul><li>Some major target groups included: hotel associations, vegetable market, ganj and kirana markets, pigowners’ association, schools and colleges, NGO’s, media, etc. </li></ul>

  4. 4. Development of SWM systems strategy <ul><li>When work commenced, the CMC had no maps.

  7. 7. Community Educational Material: Picture Book <ul><li>The Sutradhara in Nammuru Chendadooru is the motif for a variety of communication material planned to be utilised in engaging with the wide public.

  8. 8. Community Educational Material : Posters <ul><li>A series of 13 posters developed to communicate various aspects of sustainable SWM in Raichur. </li></ul><ul><li>Raichur City – A brief of the city with basic details like population, waste generation per ward etc </li></ul><ul><li>Raichur Waste Generation – Physical characteristics of municipal solid waste </li></ul><ul><li>How waste should be managed – Waste segregation and details of the collection infrastructure that would be deployed in slum and non-slum households. </li></ul><ul><li>Composting – Explains the methods of composting and motivates one to practice backyard composting </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – The 3Rs that can solve the waste problem </li></ul><ul><li>Pourakarmikas – Helps to develop a humane approach towards the plight of Pourakarmikas </li></ul><ul><li>Management Action Plan (MAP) - Gives the entire information of MAP in a package.
