'Water is likely to become one of the limiting resources of the next century, as well as one with multiple, often conflicting uses'- UN Commission for Sustainable Development, Second Session, New York, 1994

Water Statistics are staggering!

Over the next 20 years, the world's population will increase from six billion to an estimated 7.2 billion, while the average supply of water per person is expected to drop by one-third. An estimated one billion people around the world still lack safe drinking water.

Water sector worldwide is faced with many challenging issues. The efficient use & sustainable development of the existing water resources is an urgent need of the hour. The drinking water scarcity has reached alarming proportions. The issues of development of hydro power, irrigation requirements, flood control, navigation & inland waterways transport, interlinking of rivers, groundwater quality, waste water treatment & reuse are some of the burning issues confronting the policy planners, industry players and other stake holders.

To discuss these issues, www.IndiaCore.com organised the International Conference- ''Water India 4- Water Resources Development - Flood Control, Irrigation, Drinking Water, Waterways, Hydro Electric Power and its Transmission System' in partnership with The Hydro Power Association, The Dams Society, Council of Power Utilities & AESI.


The Major objective of this conference was to provide a forum for

- Sharing of experiences of policy makers, utility engineers, water resource development planners, managers, consultants, academicians, environmentalists, users, manufacturers etc. on the theme of Water Resources Development- Flood Control, Irrigation, Drinking Water, Waterways, Hydro Electric Power and its Transmission System.
- Increasing awareness about the role hydropower can play in sustainable development as the most important source of renewable energy.
- Promoting & managing hydro development in an environmentally and socially acceptable way.
- Discussing environmental concerns some of which transcend the local/ regional ambit.
