Venue: CSE, 41, Tughlakabad Institutional Area, New Delhi-110062
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is organizing a five day training programme on “Water Sensitive Urban Design and Planning” (WSUDP). The five day training includes first four days of classroom training, followed by a field exposure visit.
About the Training
Water problems jeopardise the survival of millions of people in urban India. Rapid and unregulated growth of towns and cities is a key reason for unsustainable water management. The current water model primarily focuses on supply side management and emphasis on the energy as well as resource intensive centralised urban water management. The increasing demand–supply gap and deteriorating environmental conditions are increasing the need for environment friendly alternatives. It is important to take up the challenge in controlling and judiciously using natural resources to reduce our ecological footprint. This can be done by using WSUDP approach which integrates the urban water cycle, water supply, wastewater, storm-water and groundwater management. This approach contributes to sustainability and livability, particularly when considered part of an overall urban strategy. This training will focus on the components of WSUDP –Rainwater Harvesting (RWH), Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SuDS) and Wastewater recycle and reuse.
Registration to this popular training is on first come first basis.
Program Design: September 25-29, 2017
The training programme will follow a mix method approach involving lectures, in-class exercises, interactive discussions and audio-video training support. The participants will get the opportunity to plan and design water sensitive urban systems as part of ‘Do It Yourself ‘- group exercise.
RWH and SuDS: September 25-26, 2017
The two day programme will focus on urban RWH and SuDS. These concepts will showcase the potential they hold in water augmentation and flood mitigation by using opportunities of existing green/public spaces. The training will impart skills on planning and designing of RWH systems (both storage and recharge structures) and SuDS (Swales, detention ponds, etc).
Wastewater recycle and reuse: September 27-28, 2017
The two day programme will focus on the wastewater component of WSUDP. This will enable participants to plan for recycle and reuse of wastewater after understanding the status of excreta in a city with the help of a Shit Flow Diagram (SFD) tool. The training will provide hands-on experience on planning and designing of decentralized wastewater treatment system for local reuse. This will be showcased by case examples at various scales.
Field Visit (Optional): September 29, 2017
The training programme will be followed by an optional one day field visit to demonstrate successfully implemented WSUDP structures. The field visit will provide an opportunity to interact with the real implementers to understand the benefits and on-ground challenges for its sustainability.
Full training course fees: Rs 13,500/– (250 USD)
