Best Practices Challenge on Water Management & Wash in India 2022

1st September 2022 , @ 10.00 PM

Water and WASH problems in India are increasing due to the shrinking availability of water and the poor management of water resources. In India, 229 million people lack access to improved sanitation facilities and three-fourths of India’s rural households do not have piped, potable water and rely on sources that pose serious health risks. 21 major cities, including Delhi, would run out of groundwater by 2030. Tackling the impact of climate change and reducing the impact of Water Scarcity on organizations has become a key priority for all stakeholders. Companies need to know their water risk and water stewardship opportunities which strengthen Business.

The challenge will focus on company policies and best practices in response to the urgent need for accelerating emerging sustainability priorities around SDG - 6, which have gotten further accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
