The Centre for Policy Research in collaboration with the Society for Participatory Research in Asia (PRIA) organised a day-long national conference to highlight various social innovations by civil society organisations (CSOs) to improve access to sanitation. The solutions shared were embedded within the local contexts.
The conference was attended by representatives from ministries of national and state governments, policy making institutions, research institutions, academia, community networks, social movements, civil society organisations, and international development agencies.
