Bangladesh has achieved the remarkable feat of going from 42% open defecation in 2003 to less than 1% in 2016. Bangladesh's success in sanitation, which is something so far unattained by its wealthier neighbour to the south, India, came from a dogged campaign supported by 25% of the country's overall development budget. On a related note, Kiran Bedi, the new Governor of Puducherry has outlined an innovative plan where 'Swachh Bal Senas', teams of children will be given whistles to alert cops when elders litter the city.
