CASE STUDY

How Indore Became India’s Cleanest City (And How Others Can Follow)

In 2016-17, urban India generated approximately 15,000 truckloads of solid waste--most of it untreated and dumped in landfills and by roadsides. Indore, the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh, has eliminated garbage dumps, ensured all household trash is segregated and organic waste converted to useful compost or fuel. We explain how this city of 2 million became the country's cleanest and the lessons it holds for urban India, faced with growing mountains of waste. 
SPOTLIGHT

India has had an anaemia-control programme since 1970. Yet, more than half of all pregnant Indian women are anaemic, as are 23% of men and 58% of children under the age of five. In March 2018, the Centre launched Anaemia Mukt Bharat: Using year-round behaviour change campaigns, faster testing and point-of-care treatment and intensified awareness screening, the programme aims to reduce anaemia prevalence by three percentage points per year among children, adolescents and women of reproductive age by 2022. However, states allocated only 36% of the required budget, a UNICEF report shows.
