Over the past two decades, the dominant model of urbanization has been far from smart and sustainable. This has been the major conclusion of Habitat 3 point around the Grove, everyone is a parity from every community is facing a growing set of challenges to transform in the 21st century to improve people’s lives. Ebanise Asian is creating significant opportunities for social and economic development and more sustainable living. But it’s also exerting significant pressure on infrastructure and resources and potentially opening the door to escalating social inequality. Urbanization is a global trend in which urban centers have become hotspots for economic and demographic growth. However, rapid urbanization and population growth threaten the sustainability of natural resources, especially water, due to increasing demands on resources and the subsequent generation of wastewater that is often poorly managed particularly in the developing world. India is the second most populated country in the world with over 1.3 billion people, 377 million people (32.2%) of which reside in urban areas. As India’s surface water resources are limited and vulnerable to contamination and depletion, there is a high and increasing dependency on groundwater resources. Groundwater is one of the primary sources of urban drinking water in India and particularly of urban areas, as in many parts of the world, but its sustainability depends on effective conservation, protection, and science-based management. Issues like pollution, congestion, water scarcity, slums, traffic, overcrowding, public transport and waste is making many of the India’s mega cities increasingly un-liveable. With an increase in Urban population, will come rising demand for basic services such as clean water, public transport, sewage treatment and housing. Climate change is likely to compound these trends through higher frequency and magnitude of extreme weather events as well as by changing the quantum and pattern of precipitation. What is stress is further the compounded in countries like India with disproportionately low freshwater resources related to population (i.e 4% of global freshwater resources against 18% of global population) and per capita storage of only 210 cubic metres even when the most of its annual precipitation (around 4,000 million cubic meters falls in just three months.
In part to engender reliable and sustainable urban water supplies and wastewater management, the Government of India initiated the Smart Cities mission; to date, 33 Smart Cities have been constituted across India. India, a global leader in groundwater utilization, is facing acute shortages of water in many urban centers due to depletion of resources and groundwater contamination in many parts of the country. To address the many, interlinked challenges facing the sustainability of urban water, an international conference is proposed by CAWTM jointly with MRIIRS, CGWB, IAH AND GHS. around World Water Day 2019. This will take place in Faridabad, India. Conference participants will be exposed to and debate up-to-date knowledge about water challenges and water management technologies. The conference will be beneficial to government, communities, business and wider interests. It is original this is backdrop that the conferences being organized. We are bringing together renowened water resources experts in academia, industry, utilities and Research Institutions and in other related disciplines from across the world to brainstorm and delibrate on various aspects of sustainable water management (i.e meeting the needs of present without compromising the ability of future generation to meet their own water needs). This international conference provides an interactive platform for electric brainstorming and sharing novel ideas and case studies. The workshop will compromise plenary sessions, technical sessions. it will also encourage young minds to look for better solutions for the future.
The workshop will comprise plenary sessions, technical sessions. Scientific and technical papers are invited on the following subject areas.
