As the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan movement swept the nation, India uncovered its path to a cleaner, more sustainable future.

In line with India's declaration in the Paris Accord, the next stride in this direction aims to overstep waste & pollution management, transforming these menaces into productive avenues of energy and growth.

The Swachh Bharat Unnat Bharat Abhiyan, set up under the Prime Minister’s Science, Technology & Innovation Advisory Council, is an initiative by the Office of the Principal Scientific Advisor to the Government of India (the O/o PSA) that will leverage global technological capabilities to create socio-economic benefits for 1.3 billion Indians by addressing the issues of waste disposal, deteriorating air quality and increasing pollution of water bodies.

To help achieve India’s commitments to United Nations - Sustainable Development Goals, the Office of the PSA has established a 'Project Management Unit' (PMU) in partnership with Invest India, India’s National Investment Promotion & Facilitation Agency.

The PMU has identified 14 'Sentinel Sites' for its pilot projects across the country through the nodal regional Project Management Units. Each pilot project will be managed by an identified professional implementing agency with a demonstrated track record of expertise and operational success, drawing on the technical and professional expertise of various academic and R&D institutions collocated near the sentinel sites.

The pilot projects will seek to discover, demonstrate, test and learn from different waste to wealth techniques & approaches in collaboration with various departments & ministries. The deployment data, as well as the management lessons generated from each project, will be replicated at various sites across India.
