For the technology providers in the area of sanitation and toilet, it is an excellent opportunity to showcase their innovation, innovative product, services and advancements. The summit shall provide excellent networking opportunities with leading professionals from Govt. Corporate Social Responsibility professionals, NGOs leaders, corporate professionals and other experts.
After Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged India Inc to join the ‘Clean India’ initiative, several companies have announced plans to improve sanitation facilities in rural areas. Sanitation and toilet sector has attracted around 1000 crore rupees from the corporate and Govt after PM call on sanitation for all and this emerging sector is creating a huge market opportunity for implementing agencies and technology provides.
Monitor Deloitte has estimated that the demand for rural toilets in India could be worth INR 500-700 billion (US$ 10-14 billion), with Rs 300-450 billion (US$ 6-9 billion) financing opportunity. Monitor Deloitte identified two main types of business models to deliver rural toilets: the Do It Yourself (DIY) model and a Turnkey Solution Provider (TSP) model. Both models require a central player or ‘market maker’ to conduct market-building activities to get the models started. Organisations such as NGOs, microfinance institution (MFIs) and cement companies can play this role, while the Government has a key role in facilitating the development of the sanitation market. The Government of India has approved funding of over US$ 4 billion for rural sanitation, but less than 60% of these funds have been used.
Better sanitation and toilet facilities in every household have become the agenda of priority for visionary Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. On the occasion of Independence Day, in his speech Shri Modi emphasized that toilet is ‘dignity of women’. In his first address to the nation Shri Modi urged parliamentarians and the corporate sector to support build separate toilets for girls in schools across the country by a targeted period.
The summit is aligned to ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’ (Clean India Initiative) of our visionary Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. IndiaCSR is an active participant of this noble mission to support and create national level forum to discuss various issues related to the toilet and sanitation, health, education, women empowerment and behavioral change for wider social good.
“ We believe that the summit would highlight the problems allied with lack of sanitation facilities and toilets and would also make resolutions to achieve Nation Sanitation Goals by 2019 as a tribute to the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, by eliminating the unhealthy practice of open defecation. Indian Government has envisioned a great mission to develop separate toilets for boys and girls in every school in the country, by 15th of August 2015.” Rusen Kumar, Director, IndiaCSR Group said.
The India Sanitation Summit will involve some of the most reputed and competent Indian and International speakers from government and private sectors, research agencies, innovators, social scientists and thought leaders dealing in sanitation and toiletries industries in the country. There will be 30 speakers and more than 200 participants projected in this exclusive summit.
