Recognising that the investments under the previous river conservation programmes have not yielded commensurate results, a number of measures will be taken up under NGRBA to improve implementation and achieve better outcomes.
Tripartite Memorandum of Agreement between the Centre, the States and the Urban Local Bodies;
Innovative approaches including decentralised treatment systems, in-situ treatment, etc;
Strong focus on technology and involvement of research institutions;
An expanded, transparent and participatory water quality monitoring programme;
Concurrent, third party evaluation; and
Citizen monitoring committees; and
Special Purpose Vehicles for implementation, wherever feasible.
