Cities are confronted with significantly changing conditions due to rapid urbanization and inadequate infrastructure increasing water demand–supply gap, loss of impervious surfaces and overexploitation of aquifers and broken water cycle. These concerns are further aggravated due to increasing incidences of flooding that is attributed to increasing built environment as well as impact of climate change. All this impacts river health / flows.
Water-Sensitive Urban Design and Planning (WSUDP) is a new approach contributes to sustainability and liveability. It involves intervention at different scales – city, ward/neighbourhood or individual buildings.
This online training is a part of series of activities envisaged under newly launched 3-year duration CSE programme – ‘Capacity building initiative focusing on ‘Making Ganga basin cities water sensitive’. Under this initiative series of – webinars, workshops trainings (both online and residential), field exposure visits, knowledge conclaves aimed at engaging 1,300+ number state / municipal functionaries and other sector players.
