The European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme and the Government of India have decided to co-fund seven outstanding projects to co-create, co-design and co-develop innovative low-cost technologies for tackling India’s water and sanitation. These projects have been working jointly for the past year and a half to address comprehensively water pollution challenges.
On 8 June 2021, India-H2O organised a joint webinar with four other EU-India Water projects (Pani Water, Lotus, Pavitra Ganga and Pavitr) during the European Green Week 2021 online conference.
The 158 registered participants were welcomed with a keynote presentation by Anshuman (Associate Director, TERI) on the water pollution related challenges that India faces. This was followed by presentations from five EU-India Water Projects detailing their approach, objectives, demonstration sites and first outcomes to tackle water pollution. The webinar ended with a lively Q&A session and panel discussion with all project representatives.
