TNUSSP | April 2018


TNUSSP carried an assessment of Community Toilets and Public Toilets facilities in the two town panchayats Periyanaicken-Palayam and Narasimhanaicken-Palayam in Coimbatore district. The assessment aimed to profile the facilities in terms of their existing infrastructure, waste and waste management, and operation and maintenance practices. Further, toilet usage patterns were analysed and exit interviews with facility users for their feedback was undertaken. Community of user and non-user households in and around the facility were also taken to get a holistic view of the functioning of these facilities. The findings from the assessment provide an overview of these facilities along with gaps and identify potential ways of addressing them.
