Chilamathur mandal, an administrative division in India of over 36,000 residents in Andhra Pradesh, aspires to build on the success of ProtoVillage and "scale out" its proven resilience model to other communities and villages, which involves collectively applying existing technology and techniques in a way that supports sustainable development, including reducing air pollution.

ProtoVillage’s experience demonstrates the value of having villages working together to create a sustainable, resilient future, using existing technologies and processes, and thinking in an interconnected way. It also shows there is a demand for new approaches that work, which is very hopeful for the dream of building a lot of good role model communities across India, starting in Chilamathur.”
