Towards Clean and Hygienic Cities and Villages

A.K. Jain (Author)

India’s huge population is a resource. However, it may become a liability by indiscriminate excretion of vast quantities of solid and liquid wastes, lack of sanitation and toilet facilities, endangering public health and resultant pollution. The country is facing the degradation of the environment with polluted land, air and water sources. Since the technical and administrative solutions have not been adequate, the government has recently launched the clean India Campaign (2014). This aims to build toilets for all, help in cleaner settlements by better solid and liquid waste management. This is a unique opportunity to adopt an integrated approach for urban and rural sanitation, solid and liquid waste management, and cleaning and protection of rivers and water bodies for improved public health, hygiene and clean air, water and land. This involves sustainable and structured actions at policy, strategic and operational levels.

The book Towards Clean and Hygienic Cities and Villages provides a pragmatic roadmap for making India more livable, cleaner and hygienic. It advocates a synergy among spatial planning, techno-environmental, social engineering and legal-institutional frameworks.

Contents: Introduction. 1. Toilets and sanitation. 2. Solid waste management. 3. Liquid waste treatment. 4. Cleaning the blue networks. 5. Legal and institutional framework.
