TNUSSP | January 2019
This report was earlier published as ‘GIS Mapping including Household and Establishment Study in PNP and NNP Town Panchayats, Coimbatore District, Tamil Nadu, 2019’. Following the title revision, the report bears the new title ‘Sanitation Situation in Periyanaicken-Palayam and Narasimhanaicken-Palayam: Access, Containment and Emptying’.
TNUSSP carried out a geographic information system (GIS) based sanitation mapping of households and establishments in the two town panchayats of Periyanaicken-Palayam and Narasimhanaicken-Palayam with an aim to primarily understand the nature of containment and on-ground desludging practices to enable more effective planning. It also included the preparation of GIS-linked database of properties (with households and establishments) covering key FSM parameters. With both spatial and non-spatial inputs, the study aimed to support the Town Panchayats in effective decision-making across the sanitation chain.
