GOVARDHAN ECOVILLAGE INVITES YOU TO A ONE DAY NATIONAL WATER CONFERENCE TO DISCUSS SUSTAINABLE AND INTEGRATED WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Water is life and it nourishes the economic, social, environmental and cultural strata of the society. Ensuring the sustainability of our water resources is cardinal to the sustenance of life on earth. Predictions are that the next world war will not be for oil, but for water. According to the recent United Nations World Water Development Report, if our current pattern of water consumption continues then by the year 2030 the world will have only 60% of the water it needs. With rapidly depleting groundwater reserves, rampant and unsustainable infrastructure development activities, deforestation, pollution, destruction of traditional sustainable methods of water conservation and irregularity in rainfall patterns due to climate change, countries like India are adversely affected. According to this report, unsustainable development and ineffective water resources management have significantly impacted the quality and availability of water resources, compromising their capacity to generate social and economic benefits. Unless the balance between demand and finite supplies is restored, we will face an increasingly severe global water deficit.
