An analysis done by CSE on the results of the Swachh Survekshan, 2017 shows that the top 3 cities in the survey – Indore, Bhopal and Vishakhapatnam – have adopted environmentally unsustainable practices for waste management. The cities are focussing on collection of unsegregated waste and transporting it to landfills, with a very minimal quantum of waste being processed. All three cities are dumping unsegregated waste. These cities are, therefore, not meeting the statutory requirements of the Municipal Solid Waste Rules (MSW Rules), 2016.

This is the latest book from our Environment Education Unit. To coincide with the Swachh Bharat Mission, the 2015 GSP audit will focus on solid waste management. GSP (Green Schools Programme) seeks to foster environmental literacy by moving beyond theories and text books and concentrates on “doing”. The programme helps schools to audit the use of natural resources within their premises, provides them the methodology to assess themselves as environmental managers and plug the gaps that are identified through the audit.
