Sustainable Development in Indian Villages
Smart Villages Initiative aims to bring sustainable development to rural Indian villages with the goal of improving the quality of life for the villagers. SVI strategies combine actions to promote economic development and jobs together with actions to support innovations in services, mostly in the areas of education, mobility, employment, health care, sanitation, energy and information technology.
Smart Villages Initiative works to revitalize the implementation of rural services including health and sanitation infrastructure, clean water supply systems, waste recycling programs, education, social services to promote gender and caste equality, innovations in energy, transport, IT and new employment opportunities for local youth within smart and competitive rural businesses.
Smart Villages Initiative was founded by Dr. Anil Shah and is based in southern California.
