CORP talk on Drink from Tap Mission in Puri, Odisha: Implications for Future Urban Water Projects | 8 Oct, 2:30-4:30 PM IST via Zoom

The Scaling City Institution for India (SCI FI) initiative at the Centre for Policy Research (CPR) and WaterAid India (WAI) are pleased to invite you to a CORP talk on 'Drink from Tap Mission in Puri, Odisha: Implications for Future Urban Water Projects' at 2:30 pm on 8 October, 2021 online via zoom. Mr. G. Mathivathanan, Principal Secretary, Housing and Urban Development Department, Government of Odisha will deliver a talk on the learnings derived from implementing the unique initiative - “Drink from Tap Mission” implemented following a city wide approach at Bhubaneshwar and Puri. While the H&UDD, Government of Odisha is committed to scaling up the Drink from Tap Mission to cover other cities and towns in the state, the experience from Puri and the Mission can serve as a source of inspiration and learning for cities and towns across the country as they plan and implement similar initiatives. Further, these learnings can be instrumental in identifying reforms and policy action and outlining a training and capacity building plan for state and local governments towards the speedy and smooth implementation of these initiatives. 

The talk will be moderated by Mr. Anup Wadhawan, Former Secretary, Commerce, Government of India; former India Country Leader, Water and Sanitation Program – South Asia. The talk aims to facilitate this cross-learning by bringing together public policy makers - Ms. Debashree Mukherjee, Additional Secretary, Department of Water Resources, River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation, Ministry of Jal Shakti, non-governmental organisation – Mr. VK Madhavan ; CEO Wateraid India, sector experts and researchers – Mr. K P Krishnan, Former Secretary Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship IEPF Chair Professor, NCAER & Steering Committee Chair, PRRC  and Hélène Zerah, Professor, French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD) and Senior Fellow, CPR to deliberate on the Drink from Tap Mission in Puri, Odisha.
