The mission is to address problems associated with water management and meet the evolving needs for building sustainability, efficiency, and resiliency in the water sector.

This association's initial phase, started in 2022, aimed to raise awareness of environment-friendly water management technologies. As the second part of this initiative, The company is developing a skill-development programme to enable eco-warriors to become proficient in using next-gen technology. The curriculum would focus on technologies in water governance, efficient operations, management of water and wastewater treatment plants, sustainable water management, technology for water conservation, and efficient desalination process using digital technologies. The purpose of the second phase is to transition from awareness to technological adoption.

Underlining the relevance of leveraging digital technologies for integrating sustainability in water management, G Ashok Kumar, IAS, Director General - NMCG, Ministry of Jal Shakti, Government of India said, “India is home to 1.4 billion people, and it has been our endeavour to provide them access to clean drinking water at all times.

It has the potential to make a great difference to India’s water economy. From water governance to water conservation, technology plays a pivotal role through its predictive nature. It not only helps us plan but also pre-empt possible issues and keeps industries or municipal corporations prepared. We are working with 5 goals in mind such as water data, increasing water efficiency through technology, etc. With this, we expect to regulate the water crisis and provide access to clean water across the value chain”.

The technology adoption would not only contribute to the modernisation of WWW plants but also equip our working population to benefit from the best-in-class technology.”
