National Level Workshop on Sustainable Ground Water Management System - 06th September 2014

About the Workshop:

The management of the all precious water resource continues to be a challenging domain not only to individuals, or even to countries but to the whole of man kind. The water management problems are compounded by hostile and unpredictable weather conditions, geography, population and many other constraints.

The present water management practices and policy adapted by many countries are largely fragmented and may not be sustainable.

  • discuss key elements of sustainable water management

  • introduce concepts and technologies to reduce urban water demand and improve water efficiency
