Conference Overview

Drinking water supply and sanitation in India continue to be inadequate, despite longstanding efforts by the various levels of government and communities at improving coverage. Over the last three years there has been a lot of activities and initiatives to propel critical issues of safe water and proper sanitation . India’s sanitation crisis is immense and not easily solved. Over 600 million people in rural and urban areas defecate in the open. The nation cannot incessantly wait. More than 60% of India’s GDP is being lost due to public health & environmental costs due to unsafe sanitation.75% of all the surface water across India is contaminated due to the discharge of untreated municipal waste water. But sanitation and hygiene are not only Indian problems, but also a challenge for many developing countries, and thus they were highlighted among the 17 new Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations. The question is, if this is all on the right track?

A fresh and collaborative approach is the need of the hour. The Government, Non-Governmental and private entities need to streamline their efforts to realize this goal. The 2nd Edition National Sustainable Water & Sanitation Summit 2016 scheduled on the 1st & 2nd December 2016 in New Delhi, India will bring the collective intelligence of stakeholders and also the acumen of visionary speakers in an effort to catalyze collaboration between the public & private water utilities, technology providers ,financers ,industrial end-users, associations in addition to water & sanitation agencies. The stage is set for another best-in-class event to share insights & ideas and to network among peers. The strategic objectives are to exchange knowledge, technologies, guidelines and tools for implementation and operation among public authorities, private companies, service providers and SMEs, enabling partnerships and creating favorable environments for the application of technologies for sustainable water and sanitation.
