A project aiming at ensuring the self sustainability of the desert village of Salasar Balaji whether it is social, environmental or economic and at making it a model for religious centre sustainable management.
Salasar Balaji, by being a very important religious centre in North India attracting Lacs of devotees of Hanuman on Chaitra Shukla Chaturdashi (around month of April) and Purnima, benefits from huge tourism and economic opportunities for the local population but also imposes a heavy stress on the environment. Massive increase in transportation, waste generation and water and energy use during those peak seasons are slowly deteriorating Salasar’s natural environment.This deterioration is a threat to the sustainability of the village’s resources, to its tourism activities and thus economic sustainability in the long run and also results in health risks for the local population. CDC proposes a 2 years project aiming at ensuring the self sustainability of the desert village of Salasar Balaji whether it is social, environmental or economic and at making it a model for religious centre sustainable management. This is to be done through rainwater harvesting and reuse of waste water for irrigation purposes, solid waste collection, transportation and sanitary disposal, the reuse of food and organic waste to produce energy (biogas) and recycling of the waste to generate income for the local population.
