Experts are joining forces to investigate the impact that releasing antibiotics from antibiotic manufacturing into India’s waterways has on the spread of potentially fatal drug-resistant infections.

An estimated 58,000 babies die in India every year from superbug infections passed on from their mothers, whilst drug-resistant pathogens cause between 28,000 to 38,000 extra deaths in the European Union every year.

A research project called AMRflows, which involves experts from Newcastle University, has received £1.2 million of UK and Indian funding to explore the role played by India’s rivers in increasing antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

Dear Sir,

This is Daniel from Chennai, I am in the requirement of drilling a new bore well for approx. 300ft . I am confused as to what gauge pipe to be used for casing because of the following reasons: 1. Neighbors have advised that 4 gauge pipes might not be able to withstand the pressure from earth and might collapse . 2. Bore-well contractor has advised that it is difficult for water to seep through 6 gauge pipes as soil may block slits I am confused which to go for, please could you kindly answer urgently as we are out of water. Your help is much appreciated,

While climate activists and world leaders were gathering in Paris in the first week of December 2015 to discuss the impact of climate change, the metropolis Chennai in the southern corner of India was inundated with floods. The worst flood to hit the region in over 100 years took the lives of more than 300 people. And at the same time, access to clean water eluded millions in the city.
