About Us

India Water Portal is a website that shares knowledge and builds communities around water and related issues in India. Managed by Arghyam, the Portal has become a valuable archive of resources, working papers, reports, data, articles, news, events, opportunities and discussions on water. It has also become a place to share experiences and solutions, to talk to water experts, and to learn about the work that others are doing in sustainable water management in India.

India Water Portal was encouraged by the National Knowledge Commission, which proposed the need for knowledge portals in various areas back in 2005. Since then, it has evolved in the spirit of openness and sharing, to become one of the foremost sources of information in India for water, sanitation, agriculture, the environment, climate change, biodiversity, and other related thematic areas.
