Clean Water Initiative

The Clean Water Initiative (CWI) aims to reduce wastage of water, make clean and potable water affordable in areas it is inaccessible, and improve levels of sanitation and hygiene there. Nearly one-third of all countries currently face medium to high levels of water stress. Billions of people worldwide continue to suffer from a lack of safe drinking water and basic sanitation facilities. It is more critical than ever before to manage water resources efficiently and monitor their wastage to address the growing demand. Furthermore, as a result of climate change, uncertainties exist in the severity and frequency of floods and droughts. The threat of water security is real, and multi-sectorial involvement in water resource management is the need of the hour!
