CEEW in association with Veolia Water India organised a roundtable discussion on regulatory framework for urban water management in India. The discussion was chaired by Dr. Isher Judge Ahluwalia and the participants represented various stakeholders group involved in urban water management including utilities, government, researchers, corporates and civil society organisations. This was the third of a series of CEEW-Veolia roundtable discussions, each of which will focus on a different but key concern in the management of India's urban water resources. Clean, adequate and affordable water is one of the most crucial inputs for human development. Unplanned urban growth has put available water resources under pressure. Insufficient wastewater treatment capabilities are adding to the existing problem. This calls for the need to regulate the WSS tariff and service quality to assign the true cost to water, reduce wastage and manage the water resources sustainably.
