The State of Water and Sanitation in India

November 16, 2017 • 11:00 am – 12:15 pm EST

Indian States Engagement Forum

India is a water stressed nation.  Yet it is India’s states that have ultimate authority over many water related issues.  Water is a key pillar in these states’ ambitions to improve the quality of life of their citizens and to drive industrial growth.  These states must form innovative partnerships to meet their needs within the context of growing scarcity, increased pollution, and interstate conflict.  The Wadhwani Chair invites you to the first public segment of the Indian States Engagement Forum series to hear from key U.S. stakeholders on their experience in addressing the water challenge across India’s states.
