1Project Title:Bangladesh Environmental Technology Verification-Support to Arsenic Mitigation (BETV-SAM)
2a)Sponsoring Ministry/Division:Local Govt., Rural Development & Co operatives/Local Govt. Division
 b)Executive Agency:Department of Public Health Engineering
3Objectives of the Project:i) Test and verify the performance of 7 to 10 new technologies " screed in" for testing and verification
   ii) Ensure that the technologies verified in ETV-AM and under this project stand the "test of time" in sustained use in real field condition (monitoring) and acquire a sence of which arsenic removal technologies are fiscally and socially viable ( fiscal and social monitoring and evaluation).
   iii) Secure the institutional sustainability of arsenic technology verification in Bangladesh.
   iv) Provide early support to the Government of Bangladesh and private sector actors in the development of plans and programs to ensure that those arsenic technologies that are eventually developed on a large scale basis in Bangladesh are properly maintained and replaced when required.
