Currently, most of the NGOs are conducting projects with a high degree of success in the individual track of Water, Health, Energy, Education, Lifestyles (Irrigation, transportation, etc), and Sustainability (Skill dev/job creation, etc) but few NGOs are doing an Integrated development of all tracks and involve Village cluster as an economic unit for financial viability that villages need as holistic development. The keynote speaker will address that as a goal and also challenge the speakers and audience to step up to that challenge along with what it takes to scale existing projects like SMART Village Development. Each speaker will address how their NGO has addressed such integrated development goals and how they can collaborate with each other to scale it nationwide into a public-private partnership as they interact with the keynote speaker.
