Water Challenges


Due to unprecedented stress on limited water resources brought about by population growth, rapid urbanization, increasing industrialization, changing lifestyle patterns and climate change, India is already experiencing water shortages in select sub-basins and watersheds. Most of India’s river basins could face severe deficit by 2030 unless concerted action is taken.

Sectors


Working in parallel at the basin and sub-basin level, the 2030 WRG’s agenda in India aims to catalyze water solutions in India’s largest river basin, Ganga, as well as adopt a thematic focus on municipal, industrial and agricultural sectors.

Results


The 2030 Water Resources Group’s approach in India has already made great strides in the analytical phase of our engagement, and has more recently begun advancing the multi-stakeholder aspect of the project.

Our Role


Building on the national government’s prioritization of water efficiency and wastewater treatment, 2030 WRG is facilitating structured engagement with multiple stakeholders from the public sector, private sector, civil society, academia, research organizations, and international agencies to develop best practice solutions and replicable partnership models for water management in the basin.
