Right now, our approach is to depend on people," says Amol Bhinge, a US-based engineer who has developed #ToiletSeva. This one-stop platform lists government-run and privately owned toilets, allowing users quick access to clean, hygienic, and safe toilets.
Amol began working on this app in 2019 alongside his friend, but unfortunately, due to the pandemic, it took them more than three years to launch this app.

2/2 We are in a pandemic of unmitigated community transmission, a pandemic of denialism. We must suppress transmission.

We must complement vaccine induced protection, hybrid immunity and natural immunity with non-pharmaceutical interventions to suppress community transmission. We must!

Our paper is out!
Current #adaptation projects do not automatically enhance #gender equality | need to be intentionally brought in at planning & implementation stages.

Delighted to have brainstormed👇figure with @Joyashree9
Embedding gender considerations and facilitating #women’s participation in project design and implementation along with #inclusive #policies, training, information access, planning, and monitoring is needed
Additional course correction for #SDG5 is needed.
Our #SDG5plus (SDG5+) approach takes into consideration #intersectionality and gender aspects beyond #women alone, & can help #adaptation actions move towards meeting #genderequality and other #climatejustice goals.

#Mythread on #Ukraine & #Africa from a #GlobalGateway perspective! Good news from @EU_Commission, #Ukraine’s recovery will cost $750 billion. Probably a lot will come from from seized #Russian assets! @vonderleyen said #EU already raised €6.2 billion for #Ukraine #MyPhoto 1/1
More to be done via a new special platform to be co-chaired by #Kyiv and #EuropeanCommission! Good initiative, but it will probably not automatically scale up private finance & create conditions for companies to think long-term! 1/2
Many questions still need to be answered: How will #EU support #Ukraine's neighboring countries affected? What are the #privatesector priority sectors: #digital solutions, #green transition, #water and #sanitation, and in which countries? 1/3

Critiquing constructively with a hope
Highlighting natural & human-induced challenges, & related problems of a region like North #Bihar, linking them with critical #drinkingwater & #sanitation schemes is with the intent of sustenance…
Moving from a rural piped-water coverage of 1.84% households (hhs) to 86.96% hhs in 2 years is DEFINITELY an accomplishment of the Govt. of Bihar. THEREFORE, must be TOLD, CELEBRATED, ITERATED all across.

However, should we NOT sensitively reflect for the sake of the future?
Big numbers convey a message of positivity,faith,advancement, AND importantly of hope&security, far more than mere 'pipe' & 'water'. The scheme's influence is beyond our imagination. Hence, we must visualize the impact when the scheme falls short due to reasons known & unknown.

I’m going to tweet out a mix of great books--one per day--with a link to buy them at Spoiler alert: On the last day, I’ll tell you about the book I’ve written, which is coming out in April from @AvidReaderPress.
I’ll also add your #worldtoiletday book recommendations if you tweet them at me with a brief note about why you suggest them.

Forced evictions & demolitions during #Covid_19 in Pakistan.
As “Eviction” contradicts the “stay at home” policy, the United Nations has called on member states & governments at all levels to stop all migrations & evictions at this time of pendamic covid-19.
The recent effects of the #COVIDー19 are causing a lot of problems around the world, especially for people who have suffered significant loss of #income. In such a difficult and critical time, ‘#home’ has become a ‘#defense’ against the #coronavirusPandemic.
States around the world are ordering people to stay “at home” to prevent the spread of Covid-19. But at the same time, many states are at risk of being evicted, while at least 150 million people worldwide are homeless and living on temporary shelters or sidewalks.

Dear Mr. Praveen Pardeshi, #Municipal #Commissioner, @mybmc Sir we are going through tough times and to cease the #coronavirus in #slums of #Mumbai there's a need for #MCGM & #Maharashtra #Government to vigorously work with Community Based Organisations (#CBOs) @OfficeofUT (cont)
There are 1200 plus #CBOs in #Mumbai formed under the #Slum #sanitation Program of #MCGM. @CMOMaharashtra if #BMC could appoint one nodal NGO/CBO who are experts in Sanitation, through nodal #NGO government/companies could find it easy to reach the CBOs & their communities (cont)
with various welfare packages and would also find easy to detect the affected person easily because #CBOs are formed for caretaking the community toilets and welfare of the community, they have the list of families who are the beneficiaries of the toilet and are also aware (cont)

Recognizing there was persistent #unemployment in rural areas – and no #SocialSecurity mechanism for the #poor, the #MGNREGA aims to provide #wage #employment to poor #rural households, strengthen rural #livelihoods, and ensure #socialinclusion. #GandhiAt150
The Act guarantees that state govts will set up schemes to provide no less than 100 days of #employment in one financial year to every rural household whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual #work.
