|Abstract:||This is part of a Working Paper series that came out of studies and action done by CANALPY, an initiative of the collaboration between Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay and the Kerala Institute of Local Administration. The major aim of CANALPY is the rejuvenation of canals through decentralised and participatory social and technological interventions. The initiative, led by Kerala Institute of Local Administration (KILA) and Centre for Technology Alternatives for Rural Areas (CTARA), IIT Bombay, started with 18 students from Centre for Technology Alternatives for Rural Areas (CTARA), IIT Bombay and 17 students from the SCMS College of Engineering and Technology, Kerala coming together for a Winter school in November 2017. The preliminary assessment of water and sanitation issues in Alappuzha thus identified solid and liquid waste pollution in the sub-canals as the major impediment to the health of the canal system. This called for a comprehensive assessment involving - civil survey of the canals to restore flow, more stakeholders (shops, industries) and the viability of interventions (including the willingness to pay for improved sanitation systems). This was carried out as a Summer School during May 2018 involving 300+ students from multiple disciplines all over India. The main academic partner in this exercise was CUCEK (Cochin University College of Engineering, Kuttanadu). This report presents the findings of the Summer School. These are abridged versions of the larger reports. The academic reports may be downloaded freely from the CANALPY website, www.canalpy.com Working papers|
