Sanitation Worker Safety: A 5-Million People Strong Blindspot In Sanitation

FH Cabaret, Stockholm

In 2017, Dalberg Advisors, supported by the Gates Foundation, carried out a first-of-its-kind comprehensive study of sanitation workers that focused on identifying personas of workers, a nuanced description of problems, high-potential solutions, and strategies for India. In 2018, this study is being used to design several programs in the national government, by different cities, and private sector organizations including an innovation program launched in April 2018. 

This session will be used to showcase the problem, high-potential solutions including the Sanitation Worker Innovation Lab, forge strategic partnerships to address this issue in India and share lessons learnt.
