Access to Housing and Water in Rural Area: A Study at Pukpui Community, Lunglei, Mizoram

ABSTRACT

Housing and water are the basic requirements to sustain rural development. The issues in regards to rural housing and water remain, despite the implementation of various schemes addressing these issues. The access to, as well as quality and adequacy of housing and water, are the main focus of this paper. The household economy plays a significant role in the improvement of housing conditions in the rural area. The availability of drinking water to all households do not reflect the scarcity of water being a serious issue, especially during the dry season. The practice of conscious use of water still needs to be emphasized.
