Jal Jeevan Samvad - April 2021
India is committed to ensure piped water supply to every home in the country by 2024 and to realize this goal, Jal Jeevan Mission is being implemented in partnership with States to provide functional household tap connections to every rural household. This will help in improving the quality of lives especially of women. This is the seventh issue of the newsletter.
An infallible way of ensuring ODF sustainability in a Gram Panchayat (GP) was to setup community sanitary complexes (CSCs) in public spaces to cater to visitors and the floating population. Acknowledging this, the State Sanitation Committee of the Government of Punjab organised a mass construction drive, calling upon the rural communities to build CSCs and take up Solid and Liquid Waste Management (SLWM) initiatives to result in visual cleanliness of their villages.
