Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) was launched by Honorable Prime Minister of India on October 2, 2014. The main objectives of SBM urban is to address both elimination of open defecation and Solid Waste Management in all Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) of the country by 2019.To create awareness among ULB officials regarding the objectives of SBM along with the enabling policies, rules and guidelines, NIUA has conducted SWM Exposure Workshops under Swachh Bharat Mission in three phases during 2016, 2017 and 2018-19. The goal of this project is to build capacities of ULBs in India by improving their understanding about Solid Waste Management and enhancing their skills to deal with it. About 224 participants from 85 ULBs from 25 states and Union Territories (UTs) were trained in phase I between May–October 2016 and 420 participants from 182 ULBs from 27 states and UTs in Phase II between May–October 2017. About 647 ULB officials were trained in 24 batches (12 batches each) during both phases of workshops conducted with support from MoHUA. In the Phase III, 80 City Cluster Workshops were conducted in a decentralized manner in 43 locations across the country in which 3439 ULB officials were trained from 1789 ULBs.Based on the learning from the above workshops, a "Compendium on Solid Waste management Initiatives in Urban India" has been prepared by NIUA. This document will be used in forthcoming city cluster workshops to be conducted in Phase IV of SWM Exposure Workshops (September 2019-December 2019).NIUA has been supported by MoHUA to implement the above mentioned initiative. Phase IV targets to orient elected  representatives and train ULB officials in charge of Solid Waste Management through 50 city cluster workshops (10 for elected representatives and 40 for ULB officials). Each city cluster workshop aims to train 40 participants from 20 ULBs in a cluster of cities in different states, thereby training 800 ULBs in the country. These workshops would be conducted in 20 locations, spread all over India.The main objectives of the workshops are:To recognize the issues, challenges and constraints of SWMTo understand the Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016To be aware of the various approaches, technologies and their financial implicationsTo plan to implement solutions in their cityTo achieve capacity building of ULB staff for implementing the plansSensitization on Swachh Survekshan 2020
