By 2025, 2/3rds of the world’s population could face a water crisis. By 2030, water supply may be outstripped by water demand by 40%, as is being observed in various cities of India. Currently, smart cities are the need of the hour, and these smart cities need Water Sensitive Urban Design crucial to solving water issues in Metro cities, which are likely to be home to 75% of the country’s population.
In this session, we hope to be able to have conversations about how to create water-secure cities in India through urban planning, reduction and reuse, data analytics driven solutions, city aquifer mapping, rejuvenation of water bodies, and rainwater harvesting. We’ll also talk about how cities can track natural infrastructural assets, forecast, and mitigate imminent water resource challenges through scientific and evidence-based approaches.
The ultimate objective of this event is to turn the focus of the community towards making Hyderabad a water positive city using data driven approach for awareness, conservation and management.
