India has declared itself open defecation free (ODF). The infamous distinction of having the world’s largest number of people going out to defecate is a history. But would that signal the end of our quest for sanitation story? Most certainly not.
The country is beginning to wake up to fresh challenge: how would it dispose of the massive amounts of solid and liquid waste generated from the millions of new toilets we have built? How do we prevent all this waste to seep back into our groundwater or our lakes and rivers and turn into an unmanageable health hazard? What are the safe, adaptable and sustainable technologies for managing toilet waste and for reusing faecal sludge?
We bring you a training programme designed to understand the problem and explore solutions. It will be conducted at our state-of-the-art residential training facility in Nimli, Rajasthan, by acknowledged experts from the field.
