Seminar, SPA Delhi, 2017

The solution today to water scarcity is to build a dam 200km away from the city to acquire a quantity which is wasted as Non Revenue Water. If we are to have a water positive future in the next 20 years, there needs to be a balance between the central water supply and decentralised water management at settlement level. Case studies such as Ayanagar Urban Renewal, Regenration of Hauz Khas lake were looked at.
