Interactive Exchange Session on Potable Water Management in Indian Urban Spaces
As cities and towns continue to grow, they place an ever-greater challenge on natural resources, such as groundwater, and the need to ensure clean, potable drinking water for urban populations. The issues are often exacerbated by the demand for water from new industries located within Urban Local Bodies (ULB), as well as climate change, which pose an existential challenge for the sustainable urbanization of towns and cities. These challenges can be mitigated through the implementation of innovative technologies and urban development plans, efficient sanitation measures, as well as through efficient water management.
The cities of Solapur, India and Murcia, Spain have been paired under the framework of the International Urban Cooperation (IUC) project, with a focus on cooperation and exchange of best practices on potable water, which is related to SDG 6 (Clean water and sanitation), SDG 9 (Industry, innovation and infrastructure) and SDG 11 (Sustainable cities and communities).
The discussions between Murcia and Solapur have triggered the desire to host an interactive exchange session on this topic with various stakeholders, as challenges with regard to ‘potable water’ are also very relevant to other urban local bodies (ULBs) across India.
This Interactive Exchange Session seeks to bring together representatives from interested municipalities in India, relevant Government agencies (EU/India), research institutes and EU businesses with relevant technologies with the aim to:
- Facilitate the exchange of best practices in sustainable urban water management;
- Increase awareness of concrete on-the-ground demand for specific project opportunities;
- Establish an interactive exchange of knowledge, insights, expectations and ideas that help explore avenues for Europe-India business collaboration that is centered on concrete (pilot) project opportunities that may be developed (jointly).
- As per the demand demonstrated in the session: Share insights on potential, relevant technologies/solutions that could be explored for adaptation and implementation in India.
