According to the report, as many as 18 canal networks and three rivers were cleaned and revived by the local panchayats and the Responsible Tourism Mission Kerala.
Kerala Tourism believes that these STREET projects will encourage responsible tourism. The tourism department also wants tourists to visit the lesser-explored destinations in the state.
The STREET projects are based on several themes like Green Street, Cultural Street, Ethnic Cuisine Street, Village Experiential Tourism, and Art Street among others.
