WHY WASH & HEALTHY SPACES?

Cities in India (like many Global South cities) face a host of challenges as they expand rapidly. With limited resources, inadequate WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) services and the polluted natural environment remain critical concerns. The current COVID-19 pandemic, with its impact on the urban poor, is an urgent reminder of why inclusive access to WASH and healthy spaces matters.
