Overview

Water is a precious resource for human development, economic growth, and environmental sustainability. However, water resources are increasingly under pressure from population growth, climate change, and pollution. This is leading to water scarcity, water quality degradation, and increased conflict over water resources. The Water Resource Management program aims to bring together geospatial and emerging technology experts to share experiences and best practices in water conservation, sanitation, and management. As it’s a critical global challenge that demands collective effort to navigate the path towards water sustainability by bringing together stakeholders from diverse sectors, including government, academia, civil society, and the private sector. The program aligns with the common vision of the Ministry of Jal Shakti and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals of ensuring access to safe and affordable drinking water for all, and to improve water quality for the benefit of people and the environment.
