Transcript

  • 1. Towards Cleaner India: Providing clean drinking water and proper sanitation facility to all
  • 2. WATER • WATER IS THE MOST ABUNDANT COMPOUND ON EARTH'S SURFACE, COVERING ABOUT 70 PERCENT OF THE PLANET……… • ALTHOUGH WE CAN SURVIVE FOR WEEKS WITHOUT FOOD, WE CANNOT SURVIVE FOR MORE THAN A FEW DAYS WITHOUT WATER. BODY WATER ALLOWS US TO REGULATE OUR CORE TEMPERATURE SO THAT IT GETS NEITHER TOO HOT NOR TOO COLD. BODY WATER IS ALSO A CRITICAL MEDIUM FOR BLOOD AND CELLS SO THAT: • NUTRIENTS, GASES, AND ENZYMES CAN BE DISSOLVED • NUTRIENTS AND OXYGEN CAN BE TRANSPORTED • CELLS CAN GET RID OF WASTE • TISSUES AND ORGANS CAN HAVE FORM…… BLA BLA BLA…..
  • 3. • More than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. Nearly all deaths, 99 percent, occur in the developing world • Lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every four hours. • Of the 60 million people added to the world's towns and cities every year, most move to informal settlements (i.e. slums) with no sanitation facilities. • 780 million people lack access to an improved water source; approximately one in nine people • "[The water and sanitation] crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through gun.
  • 4. WE ALL KNOW THE PROBLEMS RELATED TO WATER AND SANITATION..…… THE SOLUTIONS ARE HIDDEN IN OURSELVES….. • USE OF WATER AT HOME SHOULD BE REDUCED BY AT LEAST 5 LITERS PER PERSON BY SMARTLY USING THE WATER. • WE SHOULD INFLUENCE PEOPLE LIVING AROUND US TO PLANT MORE AND MORE TREES IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD. • GOVERNMENT SHOULD MAKE RAIN WATER HARVESTING COMPULSORY FOR ALL THE BUILDINGS, INDIVIDUAL HOUSES, CORPORATE HOUSES AND MANUFACTURING UNITS. • THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD CREATE WATER RESERVOIRS EVERY 20 KILOMETERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. • ALL OF US SHOULD TAKE THE RESPONSIBILITY TO NOT ONLY TEACH OUR FAMILY BUT EVERYBODY WE CAN, ABOUT THE SCARCITY OF WATER AND THE WAYS TO REDUCE ITS WASTAGE. • GOVERNMENT SHOULD ALSO NEED TO MANDATE TREE PLANTATION ACROSS THE COUNTRY. • GOVERNMENT SHOULD SET UP PLANTS TO RECYCLE WATER ACROSS ALL THE CITIES OF THE COUNTRY. AT AN INDIVIDUAL LEVEL ALL THE CITIZENS OF THE COUNTRY SHOULD RECYCLE WATER BY USING WATER FOR GARDENING, CLEANING ETC.
  • 5. SANITATION AND HYGIENE SERVICES ALMOST NIL IN INDIA • AS REPORTED BY THE HINDU, AS MANY AS 4,861 OF 5,161 CITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY DO NOT HAVE EVEN A PARTIAL SEWERAGE NETWORK. • INDIA HAS A POPULATION OF ALMOST 1.2 BILLION PEOPLE. 55% OF THIS POPULATION (NEARLY 600 MILLION PEOPLE) HAS NO ACCESS TO TOILETS. • SANITATION IS ALSO A MATTER WHICH WILL REQUIRE LOT OF FUNDS FOR IMPLEMENTATION • IMPROVED SANITATION FACILITIES ARE ESTIMATED TO RESULT IN AN AVERAGE REDUCTION IN CASES OF DIARRHEA OF MORE THAN 33%. • DIARRHEA IS THE SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH AMONG CHILDREN UNDER FIVE IN THE WORLD. AROUND 1.5 MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR - NEARLY ONE IN FIVE – ARE CAUSED BY DIARRHEA.
  • 6. SANITATION SOLUTION FOR INDIA • TWIN PIT (VENTILATED LATRINE) SANITATION TECHNOLOGY UTILIZED BY SULABH TECHNOLOGY • POUR FLUSH LATRINES • COMPOSTING LATRINES • AQUA PRIVIES • AFRISAN WATERLESS TECHNOLOGY • VACU-TUG TECHNOLOGY • PORTABLE PLASTIC (POLYETHYLENE) TOILETS • SEPTIC TANKS WITH DRAIN FIELDS • SEWERAGE COLLECTION AND TREATMENT SYSTEMS
