IIRD has always believed in sustainable development along with the preservation of environment, the act which we consistently work to achieve. We have collaborated with GAIL India, under the Swachh Iconic Places (SIP) programme, to provide support services in Yamunotri Trekking Route in Uttarakhand to facilitate pilgrims in their religious endeavour. Under this activity, toilets were set up by IIRD and the cleanliness of Yamunotri Trekking Route was carried out; garbage bins and bottle crushers have also been installed. We also made provision for safe drinking facility by setting up RO water purifiers for people along with the hot water for mules. Facilitation of the pilgrims through the installation of benches, TV, coffee vending machines is also a major activity. All these support services also provide for the livelihood activities for the people involved in the project.
