Among the immediate programmes that will be launched include the cleaning of vacant lands which will be used for vegetable cultivation, and a comprehensive waste management plan to collect, separate and recycle waste in panchayats and municipalities. Power generation from solar energy and wind energy will also be a part of this project, for which the Kerala State Electricity Board has already set the ball rolling.
