Our initiative is supported by the Ministry of Water Resources, UNESCO, International Water Management Institute, and Water Technology Centre, (IARI), KPMG (as knowledge partner) and other prominent organizations in water sector. As is evident, Water is going to be of increasing critical importance to countries like India in the coming years. ASSOCHAM has been carrying out special studies and surveys on water conservation and related issues. Our view is that water is going to be as integral part of whole infrastructure system as roads, power, etc in the development process in future. During informal consultations with government officials, experts and NGO's, we have been advised to raise awareness about water management among the consumers, industrial houses, agriculturists, environmentalists, NGO's, media, etc. so as to generate priority concern for all and to help find right solutions.

This event will be focusing on resolving the critical issues on water which are going to be faced by all stakeholders more acutely in immediate future, specifically by the industry counterparts. It focuses particularly on the gray areas, where the need for better governance, infrastructure, and effective capacity-building is highest and certain issues like self governance, consensus regarding cess issues and subsidies for acquiring new technologies for higher water use efficiency. The event is targeted to those involved in formulation and implementation of water-related policies and investment strategies, as well as to professionals and other stakeholders at all levels. The outcome of the Summit will be in form of recommendations addressing to complex aggregation of policies, legislation, socio-economic approaches and management strategies through which we can seek to achieve water sustainability.
