Networking with partners in the field of Sanitation and regular follow ups lead to most desirable results. This was proved by the decision of the Water and Sanitation Programme (WSP) of the World Bank Bangladesh to arrange for a study tour of the excellent sanitation facilities provided in Trichy City Corporation and Musiri Town Panchayat in Tamil Nadu. The Bangladesh team consisting of senior officials from the Department of Health and Sanitation, Mayors of City Corporations and Officials of Local Government Units (LGUs), visited Musiri Town Panchayat and Trichy City for an on- the-spot study of the decentralized system of wastewater management (DEWATS) in Musiri and Trichy and solid waste management in Musiri, Thottiyam and Trichy City.

According to Mr.Vivek Raman of WSP, New Delhi, “The main purpose of the study tour was to help team members learn how the LGUs in close co-ordination with the NGOs and government had obtained technical and financial support for such schemes and also O & M practices” The team observed the DEWATS systems in Trichy City Corporation and Musiri Town Panchayat, both established by the Local Bodies with technical support from BORDA through ExNoRa International. The team members were especially impressed by the deep and committed involvement of the Self-Help Women Groups in the operation and maintenance of the DEWATS in Trichy and in the composting of garbage collected after primary segregation. The local bodies arranged for the transport and processing of garbage.
