Rajshahi City, having a city corporation area of 96.72 sq. km and a population of 449,756 (in 2011), is providing non-sewered sanitation (NSS) services to its residents. Chattogram City, having an area of 155.4 sq. km and a population of 2,581,643 (in 2011), is implementing a sewerage sanitation system complementing existing NSS services and has developed an FSM action plan to expand and guide future investments in NSS. Shit Flow Diagrams (SFDs) show the safely managed sanitation for Rajshahi is 25%, while for Chattogram is only 1%. UNICEF Bangladesh with LGD has undertaken a CWIS project for CCC and RCC, but the concept of CWIS is new to them. Why the sanitation situation is like this and what the suggested actions are to be taken to improve service delivery are mostly unknow to them. So for the best utilization of the planned investments and to improve the sanitation situation, ITN-BUET (with the support from Unicef) conducted City Service Delivery Assessment (CSDA) for Chattogram and Rajshahi City Corporations following the CWIS CSDA Guideline. CSDA outcomes recommend the actions needed for enabling, delivering, and sustaining sanitation services in an inclusive manner.
