Water, sanitation and health situation in select villages of Nadia district, West Bengal
To assess the exact level of water contamination in Nadia district of West Bengal, India Water Partnership commissioned a brief study to one of its east zone partners - Kalyani Institute for Study, Planning & Action for Rural Change (KINSPARC). KINSPARC conducted a comprehensive base-line survey of a cluster of villages in Nadia, based on which Iswaripur and Chandamari village were identified for in-depth study. Awareness and attitudinal changes among people generated by this survey may be interpreted as a step towards mitigating the threat of an impending disaster. Amita Bhaduri posted 8 years ago
