conference contributionposted on 12.02.2018, 15:08 by Vinay Vyasa
'Nirmal Gujarat’ is a new initiative of Gujarat government for achieving total sanitation facilities in rural and urban areas of Gujarat to improve sanitation and hygiene for a clean environment while accelerating overall development in the state. In the past, expected results in terms of longterm sustainability could not be achieved because of a range of issues ranging from inappropriate technology selection to low levels of people involvement, etc. TSC and Nirmal Gujarat have tried to overcome these shortcomings by extensive community engagement. A key concept of TSC and Nirmal Gujarat is to encourage the active participation of women in all aspects of sanitation implementation. The realization of these concepts has led TSC & Nirmal Gujarat to begin working with communities to increase women’s involvement in sanitation projects. The strategies have been thus designed to address these factors to achieve benefits and an equitable impact for all communities.
