Genesis#24 TechTalk: Water conservation, online

About this event

India is overwhelmed with challenges associated with limited water supplies, climate change and rising population. We often hear of words like “conservation” and “reuse” as blanket solutions for India’s water woos. While such solutions exist- it is important to understand that “one size fits all” approach may not work as water is a “social” subject and needs to be driven holistically with all elements such as people, finance, regulations etc.

The presentation will use examples of global water conservation programs such as Orange County, California (OCWD), PUB Singapore and elaborate on “Key elements of Water Conservation Program” that could provide a way forward.

For joining online, register for the event at the link below and you will receive the Zoom webconference link on 20 March by  the event start time of 12:00 noon IST.
