Heritage and Problem Identification Walk around Old Town
Friday July 08, 2011

As an outcome of the Wash Exhibition, the Chief Executive Councillor Rigzin Spalbar suggested LAMO organize a walk through Old Town with residents, policy makers and other stakeholders in the area.  The walk was organized in collaboration with LAHDC (Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council).  The aim of the walk was to look at the current sanitation and hygiene standards in the area as well as drainage, stray dogs, garbage and toilets.

The walk began at the LAMO Centre where a presentation was made on Drainage, Sanitation and Hygiene in Old Town.  The CEC spoke about the responsibility that the residents of Old Town have to take for the upkeep of their neighbourhood, since it is they who are most effected.  He also emphasized that cooperation between all the stakeholders for keeping Old Town clean was essential, this included the residents, government departments and the concerned NGOs.  At the end of the walk representatives were chosen from different areas of Old Town whose responsibility it would be to ensure the upkeep of Old Town and spread awareness among the residents of Old Town regarding garbage disposal, hygiene and sanitation.  They would also have to report to the NAC, PHE, or other concerned departments about problems or issues faced in the area.

Participants included: key residents of Old Town including the goba (local leader), CEC Rigzin Spalbar, representatives from PHE (Public Health and Engineering), NAC (Notified Area Committee), Road & Building Association, Gonpa Association, Muslim Association, INTACH, LOTI, and ASI.
