  • Ok , Let me elaborate:

    CLTS: Community led total sanitation which aims at behavioural change through methods like name and shame, civic awareness etc. It has been quite successful in Bangladesh. Something which we need to follow in SBA as mere toilet creation is not going to help until people are not compelled/motivated to use it.

    ODG Model: Used first in Vadodara and followed by Ahmadabad. Its a fast service delivery mechanism. Citizen apply for certificates like death certificate, caste certificate, domicile proof etc and they get it in one hour( timing might vary, but it is normally within a working day, u apply u get on the same day).

    Land reconstitution: read below para

    Some years ago, i visited Ahmedabad as part of a learning trip to study something that is still spoken of as a special project in India - the development of the ring road around the city. Now, ring roads themselves are not new, we have seen these all over the country. But in A'bad they did something that no one else had done on a large scale - they built the road without land acquisition.

    Usually, when a new highway is constructed, we evict those whose properties fall on the alignment, build the road and give the benefit of the new wide road to those whose properties are adjacent to the alignment. I.e., one set of people loses, and another set gains. Naturally, there is opposition to this, and the acquisition process gets stalled. KA has countless stalled projects like this.
    What Gujarat did is more fair. They took the entire area around the proposed road, calculated the area that is needed for the new infrastructure, and then reduced the landholdings of everyone by that fraction. The parcels were then re-distributed within the area, in rectangular plots with much better off-road infra too. Everyone liked it. The cost was almost zero.

    This is called 'land reconstitution'

    A possible solution to land acquisition woes.

  • Kerla model in context of socio economic inclusive growth. Where state has proactively invested in health, education and rural areas. Consequently ,kerla become a model to followed by other states to enhance living STD of their concerned subjects.
    While ,it may be a popular examples but in today's context ,when no policy can be implemted uniformly. We have to look States those have come across with out of box ideas.
    Some others are my favorite ;

    -SHGs (women) are being utilized by IRCtC to provide healthy food in trains and income security to women. Certainly a out of box idea ,a sure shot to "Women empowerment "

    -Bihar govt scheme 'giving cycles to girls' had bought thunderous results with increasing girls enrollment in schools with sustainability. Consequently ,' higher voter turn out 'from women , a phenomenon to be celebrated.

    -CG PDS distribution model monitored by ICt to ensure 'food grain accessibility throgh ration shps ' to its real beneficiaries. It has been done through GPs and strict monitoring . Common it may sound to us ,but for those who had struggled hard to get their due to meet their ends for survival. Quite uncommon and proactive way of governance.

    Ethics case study ,I found them in newspaper. We may quote them as " one of the way to solve an problem ;
    -communal conflict : once it pacified , bring both communities together and engage in activities like national anthem singing etc to dilute mistrust and show faith in humanity or cherish constitutional ideals.
    (Delhi police did in Delhi this yr ,on 26th Jan post riots and result was amazing .recently each of us must have read ,finally one community agreed to vacate conflict area and helped others to build their worship palace .)

    - to improve upon work culture in a govt organization , same could be done in daily basis . singing ' National anthem ' collectively really brings instinct to do work efficiently. (Vaishali ,Bihar DM is doing it ,results were enough to be appreciated)

  • Waste Management:
    (The dutch way)

    The Dutch approach is simple: avoid creating waste as much as possible, recover the valuable raw materials from it, generate energy by incinerating residual waste, and only then dump what is left over – but do so in an environmentally friendly way. This approach – known as 'Lansink's Ladder'

    Along with it the government introfuced a tax on every million tonne of material landfilled, giving an incentive to companies to indulge in waste management and look for innovative ideas.

    -In Bangaldesh
    -system operates in two ways: through a coupon system and through prepaid meters.
    -In the prepaid metering system, every farmer gets a user card which is embedded with his photo, name and a user number
    -When a farmer needs to irrigate his field, he goes to the respective pump house and inserts his card in the meter slot and selects the amount of water required.
    -The meter starts automatically and the money is deducted from the card.
    -It costs less compared to what private tube well owners used to charge.

    -In few tribal areas (near Simlipal national park) language teachers have been hired. They are from the tribal communities. They work along with primary teachers in the primary schools.
    -These bhasha sikshaks are versed in traditional tribal language and provide education in tribal languages.Thus the language gap is being filled, at the same time diversity is being preserved, local interests being aroused etc.
