The report focuses on innovation, technology and sustainable approaches in water management
Asian economies are undergoing rapid urbanisation. By 2050, more than half of the Asian population—close to 3 billion—is expected to be living in towns and cities, particularly in tier II and III cities. Delivery of water supply for domestic and Industrial purpose remains an issue. Poor management of water sources has put them under tremendous stress. Despite various attempts over the years, water continues to be mismanaged with the over-exploitation of ground water, contamination of surface water sources, depleted flow in river basins, salinisation, etc. The per capita water has been declining at an alarming rate and the gap between demand and supply is also widening. In this report we have focused on innovative technologies and sustainable water management approaches which are of utmost importance to streamline the current water management practices in the country
