Working paper & Launch – ‘Changes in open defecation in rural north India: 2014 – 2018’

Written by Aashish Gupta on January 7th, 2019

All of us at r.i.c.e. are excited to announce our new working paper, ‘Changes in open defecation in rural north India: 2014 – 2018‘. The paper documents the extent of open defecation in rural areas of four north Indian states. It is based on a new survey we conducted in the latter half of 2018 and a survey by Accountability Initiative in 2017. In the 2018 survey, we revisited households from the 2014 survey on open defecation in rural north India. The results of the 2014 survey were published in the Economic and Political Weekly.

Please also join us for the launch of the working paper on the 9th of January, 2019 at Magnolia Hall, India Habitat Center, New Delhi. Event details are available here.
