CSE is starting a new programme on 'Making Water Sensitive Cities in Ganga Basin aimed at Improving River Health' (duration - 3 year), under the capacity building initiative of the NMCG. The programme is supported by and to be delivered in partnership with National Mission for Clean Ganga. A selected number of identified sector experts and researchers have been invited to this meeting.
This Planning cum Consultation Workshop is an effort to bring cross -sectoral experts and learn about the ongoing research, as well as identify key experts from this cohort or other experts working on the important focus areas of the programme who can be contacted to be part of this initiative aimed at developing a state of art programme.
The discussion in the workshop will be focussed on following themes –
Water Sensitive Urban Design and Planning (WSUDP) including rainwater water harvesting, water efficiency and conservation in urban areas as well as decentralised wastewater treatment and local reuse.
Groundwater and Lake Management in Urban Areas.
The basic objective of this workshop is to share the Activity Plan for 1 year and beyond. The aim is to explore partnerships with organisations or independent experts interested to be involved in this program. This includes development and delivery of the state of art teaching learning material for proposed training programmes and identification target cities for action research that will help develop the ‘Practitioner’s Guides’ and ‘Model Projects’ as key enablers for mainstreaming WSUDP into policy and practices
