EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA

Problem identified in urban slum are blockage of drainage facilities due to use of plastics on large scale.As it has various sanitation issues which hit the slum area badly particular during monsoon.second existing infrastructure are not built well as it tends to block the rainwater from absorbing and thus frequent occurrence of floods during monsoon. My idea is to educate people living in slums importance of recycling use of plastics .Effective dispose of plastic in one place and process the waste and sell it recycled to be used directly by the manufacturing industry.On the existing build infrastructure and green roofs with the help of efficient technology, can be use to build a strong infrastructure which helps to absorb rain water at a faster pace. it will help to solve the major issue of blockage in drainage facility and at the same time can be useful to generate revenue for the slum area people as they can sell to industry.thereby generating revenue.With effective use of technology on existing available infrastructure will help to solve the issue of floods in urban slum area.

WHO BENEFITS?

This ides can be implemented across the urban slum in developing countries.It will help them to generate revenue at the same time better standard of living.Majority of the people benefiting from this idea will be unemployed urban slum crowd.With efficient infrastructure it will help to create a proper living condition thereby solve the issue of floods.

HOW DOES YOUR IDEA TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE CONTEXT OF URBAN SLUMS AND CLIMATE CHANGE?

It is responsibility of every citizen of particular nation and government for the well being of the people.Idea generated can be effective with help of government and people surround ed nearby. design principle are very simple just require honest efforts to implement the effective plan

Hello Darpan, Great idea. Recycling and reuse of waste especially plastics and organic will help make slums a much better place. My team and i have been working on a similar project since last month and came up with an innovative bin to help sort domestic waste efficiently. We are still prototyping, but hope to make it available soon. Lets keep up the good work.
