Water management and governance: Innovations for a secure future

10 Sep 2019   |   1530 - 1700

Organised by UNDP and CEEW

About the event

The session is part of the Innovation Summit organised by UN Environment and Ministry of Environment Forest and Climate Change (MOEFCC) along with UNDP, United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), UN Women, International Solar Alliance (ISA), Indian Council of Agriculture Research (ICAR), Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), Observer Research Foundation (ORF), ReNew Power and Microsoft.

As a water-stressed nation, India must vigorously focus on streamlining the management of its water resources - from source to sea. For India to become water-secure, it will be crucial to augment water supply, manage demand, improve data, and strengthen institutions. In this session, the panelists will deliberate on how implementable policies could support interventions like affordable and adaptive technologies, citizen and gender participation, and establishment of various types of multi-stakeholder platforms for water resources.
