Webinar : Groundwater and Riverine System: Challenges, Opportunities and Solutions for Rapidly Urbanizing Ganga Basin on 4th August 2021



Date: 4 August, 2021
Time: 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (IST)
Venue: Online (Zoom Platform)
Language: English

Background
Groundwater resources are being extracted to meet increasing water requirement of agriculture, industrial and urban sector in the rapidly urbanizing Ganga basin.  Several cities with groundwater availability at 20 feet below ground level (b.g.l) in year 2000 are now reported to be tapping aquifers at 200-250 feet b.g.l. (below ground level). The Ganga River health / flows though are closely related to groundwater but not often discussed.  
Realizing the need of addressing this issue, Centre for Science and Environment is organizing a webinar as a part of series of activities envisaged under newly launched 3-year duration CSE programme – ‘Capacity building initiative focusing on ‘Making Ganga basin cities water sensitive’ . Under this initiative, series of – webinars, workshops trainings (both online and residential), field exposure visits, knowledge conclaves aimed at engaging 1,300+ number state / municipal functionaries and other sector players will be organized.
This programme is supported by National Mission Clean Ganga and is part of the series of ongoing efforts by NMCG aimed to ensuring convergence of Namami Gange Mission with national flagship urban missions (AMRUT, Smart Cities, Swachh Bharat Mission, HRIDAY, NULM) and other missions (Atal Bhujal Yojana, Jal Jeevan Mission, Jal Shakti Mission) at state /city level across Ganga basin states.

About the Webinar

Aim
Capacity building, awareness and action research for promoting sustainable urban groundwater management for improved river health in Ganga basin cities.
