Amid chronic water crisis in Indian cities — how to mitigate the risk?

Rising heatwaves and scorching summers are affecting India’s water security; ensuring it is imperative for the growth and development of a country and its people

Ensuring water security, especially to the underprivileged population, will require focus on increasing the supply of water through rainwater harvesting and ensuring that millions of groundwater systems are recharged.

It also requires a rethinking of the manner in which urban areas draw water from distant rural areas. This adds to the loss of water and higher costs.
