To inform, engage and inspire action to tackle global sanitation crisis, the World Toilet Day is observed on 19th November. The UN General Assembly declared World Toilet Day an official UN day in 2013. This year the focus is on the theme of ‘Accelerating Change’.
Understanding the need to accelerate change for safe sanitation, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) is all set to roll out a month-long Clean Toilets Challenge on 17th Nov., with an aim to focus on ensuring functionality and sustainability of CT/PTs and to identify the best models, efficient restroom facilities, ensuring their continuous upkeep, refurbishment, beautification and ease of access.
Keeping in line with this very motive the Clean Toilets Challenge will be run between the 19th Nov (World Toilet Day) to 22nd Nov as a run up to the Good Governance Day, when the best model toilets will be identified, felicitated and shared for early replicability by other cities.
