Bihar Pilot Interventions

Pashchim Champaran, Gandaki Basin, Bihar, India

International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in partnership with Megh Pyne Abhiyan (MPA) and Water Action (WA), are piloting Flood Resilient Sanitation in Naya Tola Bhishambharpur (NTB) village, Nautan Block in Pashchim (West) Champaran District of Bihar. By implementing and upscaling the Eco-San Toilet or the ‘Phaydemand Shauchalay’ (beneficial toilet), as it is locally known, this pilot addresses the sanitation problem resulting from floods in the area and contributes towards improved health and hygiene outcomes. The process is participatory in order to localize the concept.
