There is an urgent and pressing need for better provision of clean water worldwide. Our population is rising at a staggering rate and demands ever more resources, while the changing climate is making matters worse. Lack of clean drinking water leads to millions of deaths every year in poorer countries, while in most affluent countries the rising demand for clean water is outstripping supply.

It has been estimated that 80 percent of India’s surface water is polluted which results in India losing US$ 6 billion every year due to waterborne diseases. Water cycle imbalances, increasing water consumption and wastage in urban areas, political and regulatory disputes, increasing irrigation and agricultural demand industrial growth, lack of optimal water resource management technologies and water-borne diseases pose major challenges to the Indian water sector. According to estimates, India’s water sector requires investment worth US$ 13 billion. Development of new and sustainable means to supply, recycle and reuse precious water resources is the most significant challenge facing governments, international organizations and research agencies in the 21st century. We need to get serious about water fast to avert a major future global economic and humanitarian crisis.

New approaches to water engineering technology are vital in meeting today’s demand of water. Rising energy costs and global warming, both linked to the use of fossil-fuels, drive the need for less energy-intensive forms of water processing and reduced greenhouse gas production. Potential technological solutions and the multifarious associated environmental, economic, societal and sustainability challenges are vital areas demanding attention.

To address these challenges with an integrated and holistic perspective, ASSOCHAM is organizing its mega Water Event: “National Conference on WATER MANAGEMENT - Technology I Innovation I Sustainability on June 30, 2017 in New Delhi.

The conference aims to disseminate cutting edge research in water engineering, sustainability of water resources and energy efficiency including water industry technology innovations. The scope shall include connecting expertise, investment and inspired ideas for applied research and technological and industrial development across the country as well as globally. Participants will include leading academic researchers, scientists and engineers from water processing and associated industries as well as representatives of government organizations, international agencies and aid organizations.
