Joint Workshop on “Sustainable Urban Water Management” in Jodhpur
A Workshop was organized on “Sustainable Urban Water Management” jointly by the Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE) and the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences & Engineering (ASTE) during 13-15 March 2017 in Jodhpur. The workshop was presided over by Professor B. N. Suresh, President, Indian National Academy of Engineering, and chaired by Shri M. L. Bapna, Advisor (Industry – Academic Interface), IIT Jodhpur.
This workshop was focused on selecting priority themes and influencing a transformative change in the way urban water services are delivered and managed in cities. These are necessary in responding to future uncertainties and vulnerability brought about by an increasing world population that are concentrated in cities, a continually evolving economic and governance structure and a changing climate.
The program was jointly coordinated by Professor C. V. R. Murty, Director, IIT Jodhpur, India, and Professor Tony Wong, Chief Executive, CRC for Water Sensitive Cities, Monash University, Australia. The 3-day intensive workshop had parallel sessions with interesting talks from several national and international experts. Also, H. H.
