Integrated Online and Onsite Training Programme on Water Audit: A tool for Water Conservation

Climate change has impacted the world severely. The rising global temperature levels is putting a pressure on the availability of fresh water. Sectors like agriculture, industry, buildings, etc. consume huge quantum of water and the availability of fresh water resources has become a massive challenge. Keeping this in mind there is a need to reduce the fresh water consumption and maximize the use of wastewater.

Understanding the relevance of the subject, the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is launching an integrated training programme on Water Audit. The training programme will comprise of two parts: Basic learning (online platform) and Advanced learning (at our residential campus). The course is designed to provide an overall understanding of the water audit which includes theoretical knowledge via lectures from experts and first-hand experience through group exercises, discussions, case studies and exposure visit to industries during the onsite training.
