This projects seems to be a good initiative. But everything is interlinked.In order to have a better environment and better air to breath factors like, health, sanitation , poverty should taken care of.People should be educated about taking care of the environment.
Health care remains another huge concern. According to a recent Planning Commission assessment, the shortfall of primary health centres and sub-centres in 2008 has remained almost the same as in 2005, and the number of auxiliary nurse midwives has, in fact, decreased over the same period. Today, there is a 50 per cent shortfall in trained health workers, radiographers, lab technicians and doctors. At the existing rate, only 62 per cent deliveries will be attended by skilled personnel by 2015 – with rural areas being particularly under-serviced.
Sanitation, unfortunately, has never been a policy priority for India despite that fact that drinking water contaminated by faecal matter is a major cause of child deaths. The Report admits that India has the lowest sanitation coverage in the world – in 2007-08, an estimated 66 per cent of rural households did not have toilet facilities.
