The awareness raising about the Right to Water and Sanitation will support the case of planning and implementation at Government level.

The main part of community is the women, so according to my point of view, if we aware the women the problem of water and sanitation will be solved easily.

The survival and well being of the Indian nation depends largely upon sustainable development where a sustainable water supply and sanitation systems are essential requirements. A paradigm shift that leads from the ‘FLUSH & FORGET’ systems to ‘RECYCLE’ in consonance with a ‘WASTE TO WEALTH’ approach is therefore essential. There is an acute shortage of water and power, in fact a near crisis situation for water, in some parts of India. Innovative, decentralized solutions that are inexpensive and which can save water have to be developed without any further delay. Among the various sanitation concepts, Ecological Sanitation (Ecosan), is a holistic approach to sanitation and water management and is the most significant and viable solution.

The project site was a wetland that was used as the dumping ground for the city’s waste and was encroached upon by slum-dwellers, even though it was in the heart of the city. The key question is sanitation improvement and the availability of treated drinking water for poor people who  depend on the polluted lake as a direct source of drinking water
