About IndoSAN

The goal of Swachh Bharat is to provide access for every person to:

Sanitation facilities including Toilets, Solid and Liquid Waste Disposal Systems, and clean surroundings.We have to achieve this by 2019 as a befitting tribute to Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th Birth Anniversary.

Under Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (SBA), the Goal is now to make India Open Defecation Free (ODF) India by 2019 by construction of individual, cluster & community toilets; and villages will be kept clean, including through solid and liquid waste management through Gram Panchayats.You can know more about the initiative at mdws.gov.in .

INDOSAN is envisaged as an annual national event, that brings together all stakeholders working in sanitation government, NGOs, academicians, researchers, partner agencies, corporates on one platform for a shared vision. Sanitation is being seen as a "citizen movement", with involvement of all sectors of the society. Bringing together all such stakeholders, will create an opportunity for collective vision, collective understanding of the key elements of the Swachh Bharat Mission programme.

INDOSAN is the platform, where unfolding story of Swachh Bharat will actually happen, where each state will share their approaches most suitable to them to reach ODF. INDOSAN will discuss on all these approaches, emerging innovations, learnings are cross shared, for the benefit of all.

The challenge of sustainable behavior change at scale is the biggest challenge, and it is worthwhile to share how different field functionaries are addressing the same.
