Infrastructure Project Studio (WASH)

The inadequate understanding of urban infrastructure and lack of attention paid to cross-cutting issues often result in poor project formulation and, thus, inefficient service delivery. These problems can be addressed by a evaluating the existing infrastructure and identifying the specific projects to improving the WASH infrastructure components covering the detailed technical and financial aspects.

This studio exercise focuses to built capacities of students in critical analysis of infrastructure needs in the city, specifically for the domains of water, sanitation, storm water and solid waste. In addition, the students would be able to demonstrate inter-sectoral linkages that are prevalent in the urban realm. During this process, the studio equips the students with a broader understanding of the process of plan formulation, project identification, financial analysis and stakeholder engagement and implementation needed for executing an infrastructure project.
