January 7, 2016 - January 8, 2016
According to the website, “Mission Swachh Bharat was launched last year with the inspiration to create a clean India of Gandhiji’s dreams by the Mahatma’s 150th birth anniversary in 2019. The Prime Minister announced, that all government departments will actively participate in this mission to make it a reality. The planning commission has budgeted US$ 26.5 billion for the years 2012-2017, to provide safe water to all urban and rural areas. Whereas setting up of water treatment plants, sewage and effluent treatment plant has a business potential of around US$ 130.3 billion with the rural sanitation market being worth US$ 25 billion.”
The National Summit on Sustainable Water & Sanitation (NSSWS) will bring together various governments departments and stakeholders on one platform, since access to water and sanitation is a national need and cannot be separated. Therefore the engagement to find solutions to the problems has to come from private and public organizations.”
The summit on Sustainable Water & Sanitation focus is to create awareness about the existing water and sanitation issues in India, the governments’ future plan for swachh bharat abhiyan, national reforms on water and sanitation. Besides government undertaking this summit will also showcase sustainable solutions for the water and sanitation sector through Public-Private Partnership (PPPs) models, by inviting the private sector to participate and introduce regulatory reforms.”
