Urban Poverty, Health, and Community Action: Evidence from slums of Delhi

While the issue of poverty in the rural context has been studied extensively, there has been much less focus on poverty in urban settings despite the considerable challenges urban poverty poses to development. This research (Funded by Texas A&M University) focuses on the issue of access to sanitation in legally recognized slums. Professor YuJung (Julia) Lee (Case Western Reserve University) and Professor Tiffany Radcliff (Texas A&M University) investigate how and when community organization translates into political demands for basic services, and whether there are gender differences in the channels used for demands.

The impact evaluation of FINISH program

Directed by : Dr. Britta Augsburg (IFS)

The impact evaluation of FINISH program, a project to create, test, and mainstream the use of microfinance by rural households in India, in order to create a local, market-based approach to sanitation services. MORSEL worked in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh to collect household level data from 56 slum areas and peripheral revenue villages for endline survey. MORSEL partnered with Sambhav, an implementing NGO in that area and IFS/ Institute for Fiscal Studies based in London, UK. This project was funded by WASTE, advisers on urban environment and development based in Gouda, the Netherlands.

For this, the project partners (TATA-AIG, SNS-REAAL, UNU-MERIT, BISWA and WASTE) have developed an economic vision of sanitation in support of noticeable improvements in water supply and sanitation. The project has tested the use of microfinance for rural sanitation in order to accelerate access of the poor to demand-led sanitation, resulting in better health, economic, and social impact; and greater sustainability in sanitation service delivery, which can be implemented at a larger scale.
