r.i.c.e.

don't overlook the annual sanitation survey

annualsanitationsurvey The above is a snip out of the new draft action plan for the Swachh Bharat Mission. I am very concerned that the emphasis of the new plan will be on latrine construction -- especially in practice, whatever comprehensive list the guidelines may include. However, one great piece of news is the serious commitment to an actual survey of latrine use. There is no serious path to ending open defecation that does not involve keeping track of how much of it is going on.

Three cheers for everyone who has pushed for this survey and who will help make it happen going forward!
