- CEEW-Veolia Roundtables on Urban Water Management
CEEW and Veolia Water India, a key solution provider in urban water management, are jointly organised five Roundtables on urban water resources management. Spanning about a year, each roundtable discussion focused on one crucial issue like data collection and measurement, regulatory frameworks and capacity building. Collectively, the discussions aimed to broaden and deepen the dialogue on the challenges with urban water management across a range of stakeholders and offer directions for on-going and further research.
A set of participants who are well-conversant with the issues and who represent different stakeholder groups: government, regulators, utilities, service providers, financial institutions, end-users, and civil society organisations explored areas of critical concern, opportunities to scale positive interventions, and identified the needs for further research and information. Mr Arun Maira, Member, Planning Commission, recently launched a report published by CEEW on urban water and sanitation in India. Click Here to read.
