Although sanitation remains a focus in present government programmes and schemes (SBM and AMRUT), capacity building of ULBs and State Government on issues of sanitation has remained an area of neglect in most of the State and ULBs. The study on Capacity Building Need Assessment of cities (Angul and Dhenkanal) and state Government on Sanitation: A case of Odisha highlights systems of sanitation service delivery including septage /faecal sludge management in the cities and understand capacity gaps in the cities, both at the institutional and individual level in delivery of sanitation and inclusive urban planning. The study highlights issues of governance and challenges on the ground and provides recommendations for the capacity building on sanitation for the State and ULBs.
