With the achievements of Shimla in the Door to Door Garbage collection, waste water and sanitation field, including the development of a City Sanitation Plan, the installment of several waste water treatment plants and the commissioning of a solid waste treatment facility, the city and its surroundings offer various opportunities for the participants of the Regional Exchange Programme to learn from the experiences made and to discuss related approaches and practices. In order to facilitate the regional dialogue and mutual learning, the programme will combine in-door workshop sessions with field visits and in-situ studies.
