Water Eco-system of Delhi

Speakers: Shri Jasmine Shah, Vice-Chairman, Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi, Government of NCT of Delhi; Shri Ankit Srivastava, Technical Advisor to the Minister for Water, Government of NCT of Delhi; Prof Shashank Shekhar, Professor, Department of Geology, University of Delhi; Dr Deeksha Katyal, Assistant Professor, Environment Management, Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Delhi; and Shri Depinder Kapur, Director, Water Programme, Centre for Science and Environment, New Delhi
Chair: Shri Suhas Borker, Founder Member, Green Circle of Delhi
Top metros of the world have learnt to address their water eco-system in a sustainable manner:  from efficiently providing safe and easily accessible water to reliable sanitation and protecting their rivers and waterways from pollution. Sustainability also means resilience and adaptability to extreme weather events which may lead to flooding and scarcity. This Dialogue shall take up the entire gamut of issues pertaining to the water eco-system for Delhi: the river Yamuna; sharing of the river waters; pollution of the river; construction on the river bed; the nallas; the groundwater recharge, revival and rejuvenation of lakes and water bodies; reuse/recycling of water, sustainable water management, citizens' save water campaign led by school children etc. What are the challenges being faced by Delhi's waterscapes and water sources? How does Delhi measure across three pillars of water sustainability — resiliency, efficiency and quality? To achieve a sustainable water eco-system for Delhi can we set a future fit benchmark for 2025 with an action plan with strict timelines?
The series is dedicated to the memory of Shri Mahesh N. Buch, civil servant and environmentalist, who passed away on 6 June 2015 and who had given the key-note address at the inaugural edition of the Dialogue in 2013.
