With rising pollution levels and Climate change, the water cycle is expected to undergo significant change all across the world. India is already facing water scarcity with a current population size of 1.3 billion which will increase to 1.6 billion by 2050.
We need to act and we need to act now. The Center for Water is a collaborative project with civil society and government to ensure water sustainability.
The project is mentored by internationally acclaimed public thinker and sustainability champion Shri Suresh Prabhu. He is the founding chancellor of Rishihood University, a senior parliamentarian and former union minister in the Government of India.
The alarming scarcity of water will eventually lead us to water wars of an unprecedented scale if the issue continues to remain unaddressed. Our initiative will help in defining more relevant and effective strategies for conserving water, an essential natural resource necessary for human survival. We aim to utilize the great potential of our youth for the right management of our water resources throughout the country.
Director, Center for Water
