Khodiyar Nagar - Ahmedabad




Community Composition: [uncertain... will need to confirm]

General Description: This is a slum with about 2000+ households, part of which was
recently displaced by the much talked about Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system that
Ahmedabad has developed. Parts of the slum are also going to be evicted because
of the upcoming Sabarmati Riverfront Project. Interestingly a large treatment plant
is coming up right next to the slum - even though the slum itself has no drainage.

Sanitation Situation: Part of the slum (108 households to be exact) has been covered
under the Slum Networking Project - coordinating NGO being SEWA (Self Employed
Women’s Association). Under the SNP, these households got a private toilet within their
homes, the common streets got paved and street lighting was provided. However, the
remaining part of the slum has no drainage system and is without any toilet facility. The
dividing wall between the Sabarmati River and the slum has become a kind of a curtain
behind which people openly defecate.

Top Reasons to Choose This Location/Unique Aspects:
  ● Falls in the heart of proposed urban development and hence provides an
     interesting contrast between a community uncertain about their own future while
     a city’s future depends almost directly on it.
  ● Sanitation facilities are a mix of pay and use, open defecation and private
     sanitation. Pay and use facilities are managed by Sulabh and provides a good
     reference to study the success of their model in urban residential communities
