Jal Jeevan Mission: Clean Drinking Water to All in India
Jal Jeevan Mission envisages empowerment of Gram Panchayat and its sub-committee in the planning, implementation, management & operation and maintaining their own water supply system. It has been constant endeavor under JJM to empower the GPs and or its subcommittees like Village Water & Sanitation Committee/ Pani Samiti, etc. to enable them toperform their constitutional mandate of managing the basic services in the rural areas. The opening session will focus on the initial framework to successfully implementation of the scheme and way forward.
Impact of Clean Water on National Productivity – Fighting Noncommunicable and Chronic Water Borne Disease
It is estimated that waterborne diseases have an economic burden of approximately USD 600 million a year in India. This is especially true for drought-and-flood-prone areas, which affected a third of the nation in the past couple of years. Not having access to safe and reliable water increases the risk of many waterborne non communicable diseases. This session will present the challenges faced by the government & private healthcare infrastructure providers to manage these diseases which is impacting he overall health of the vulnerable in the effected rural areas.
Regional Challenges of Safe Drinking Water Supply Framework
Two-thirds of India’s 718 districts are affected by extreme water depletion, and the current lack of planning for water safety and security is a major concern. One of the challenges is the fast rate of groundwater depletion in India, which is known as the world’s highest user of this source due to the proliferation of drilling over the past few decades. Groundwater from over 30 million access points supplies 85 per cent of drinking water in rural areas and 48 per cent of water requirements in urban areas. The session will put spotlight on the various schemes which can empower communities to plan, design, implement and monitor rural drinking water supply, and unite community ownership for operation and maintenance.
Technology for Public Water Supply Infrastructure, Water Treatment and Drinking Water Source Management
Public water supply system, bulk water transfer, treatment plants, removal of contaminants where water quality is an issue, water source management and distribution network to cater to every rural household require technological interventions and up gradation in the existing infrastructure. It also influences the water support systems, development of utilities, water quality laboratories, water quality testing & surveillance, R&D, knowledge centre and capacity building of communities. This session will focus on government efforts in developing a framework for overall water supply infrastructures, water quality monitoring systems and strengthening operation and maintenance of water supply and role of private players in supplying advance technology and innovative support.
