Sociology of Sanitation
Beskrivelse: Waste Management: Sanitation by way of disposal of excreta in the rural areas and collection, segregation and disposal of solid waste in the urban areas still continues to remain a formidable challenge, more so because the interventions of the governmental agencies fall far short of the required dimensions. So are the supplemental efforts of the civil society. It is there that the concept of Sociology of Sanitation which forms the basic theme of this book acquires utmost relevance. Sulabh founder Bindeshwar Pathak pitched for including sanitation in the study of sociology. 'The inclusion of this subject as one of the disciplines will not only enlarge the scope of sociology but will also be helpful in solving the problems of society in relation to sanitation, social deprivation, water, public health, hygiene, poverty, gender equality, welfare of the children and empowering knowledge for sustainable development,' he said. (Source: IANS) This book will be of interest to a wide range of readers, from students, teachers, and scholars, to engineers, sanitarians, health personnel, administrators, planners and others concerned with improving sanitation in poor communities.
