INCREMENTAL​ ​DEVELOPMENT

Access​ ​to​ ​water​ ​has​ ​the​ ​potential​ ​to​ ​directly​ ​impact​ ​the​ ​economic​ ​and​ ​living​ ​conditions​ ​of​ ​the​ ​urban
poor.​ ​By​ ​focusing​ ​on​ ​the​ ​equitable​ ​distribution​ ​of​ ​water​ ​in​ ​the​ ​city,​ ​the​ ​municipal​ ​corporation​ ​could
save​ ​several​ ​crores​ ​of​ ​rupees​ ​otherwise​ ​spent​ ​on​ ​public​ ​health​ ​care​ ​and​ ​cleanliness.
Access​ ​to​ ​municipal​ ​water​ ​connections​ ​to​ ​all​ ​would​ ​ensure​ ​provision​ ​of​ ​clean​ ​drinking​ ​water​ ​and​ ​a
reduction​ ​in​ ​the​ ​incidence​ ​of​ ​waterborne​ ​diseases.
Improvement​ ​in​ ​livelihoods​ ​and​ ​education
