Sanitation is one of the important Millennium Development Goals which covers the important aspects of management of human excreta, domestic and industrial wastewater and hazardous substances. It also includes reuse of recycled products which is part of this management. However, developing countries like India where highly increasing population leaves policy makers in worry to provide basic amenities; toilets are mainly focussed to manage human faces and urine. In order to achieve the MDG, Government of India has been running many policies like Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan (NBA) and Total Sanitation Campaign. Convergence has also been done with schemes like Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MNREGA). However, it doesn’t seem to be really an effort achieving the target in the time anyhow. So, Government has set a new deadline of 2022.
This article will address the gaps and issues and will provide possible strategic solution in achieving the target.
