Integrated online and residential training: Lake Rejuvenation and Groundwater Management in Urban Areas

Indian cities are no strangers to waterbodies. Every Indian city has its share of lakes, tanks, ponds, rivers etc. These are invaluable sources of water, food and livelihood; act as bulwarks against urban floods; and many have enormous religious and cultural significance. Rapid and rampant urbanisation has, however, spelt the death-knell for many of these waterbodies. While dead and dying waterbodies fail to absorb rainwater and recharge groundwater, cities are using up every drop as they suck the aquifers dry or bring in water from further and further away.

In an age which is increasingly feeling the brunt of climate change, one of the resources that would be severely hit is water. It is imperative for cities, therefore, to invest in rejuvenating their waterbodies and manage their groundwater more sustainably

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites you to apply for its two-part training programme on this subject. See details of the two parts below.
