ASSOCHAM's Conference-cum-Expo & Awards on Science, Technology & Innovation in Water Management

  • June 28, 2018,

    Hotel Le-Meridien, New Delhi New Delhi


    We are in the midst of a global crisis with increasingly limited availability of clean water. About 1.2 billion people worldwide live in areas of water scarcity. Water sustainability is emerging as a major concern for Asia

    Pacific region with 90% of total global water?related disaster deaths. Both access and safety of drinking water remain major challenges for vast regions of India amidst demographic and socioeconomic transitions. The per capita availability of water per annum in India is nearing a 5 fold decline over past 70 years. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG?6) seeks to ensure access to water and sanitation for all by the year 2030 by covering the entire water cycle, including the management of water, wastewater and ecosystem resources. The ongoing Cape Town water crisis is a grim reminder of the future with scarce water acute divide between the rich and poor. Unless there are timely concerted efforts by communities and governments to address this, the 'day zero' is not going to be far off for our country too.

    There is a huge scope to bridge the substantive knowledge gap between technical advances in water management arena and policy and decision echelons. Keeping the above issues under consideration ASSOCHAM is organizing "National Conference?cum?Expo & Awards "Science, Technology & Innovation in WATER MANAGEMENT" on June 28, 2018 in New Delhi. The Conference will be a key event to focus on Science, Technology and Innovation with an integrated management of water resources and water governance. We seek to provide a platform for a more effective interaction amongst various stakeholders ranging from policy makers, administrators, researchers, ecologists, engineers, scientists, industrialists to communities for providing a systemic perspective and implementation of strategic studies and innovations in this field. The conference shall allow the dissemination and discussion of cutting edge technological solutions and address the associated environmental, economic, societal and sustainability challenges.

  • 23rd-25th May, 2018

    New Delhi, India


    The 5th edition of Water India 2018 Expo/One Mega Event will be held at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi from 23rd - 25th May, 2018. The theme of the exhibition and conference is "Clean Water for Sustainable Future". The exhibition is being organised by the Exhibitions India Group and India Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO), Ministry Of Commerce, realising the immense potential and emerging opportunities existing in the water industry. The expo will showcase the latest products, services and technologies including supply and distribution of water, potable drinking water, irrigation systems, water storage systems, waste water treatment, sewage treatment, hazardous waste, water sustainability/harvesting/conservation, solar powered water supply, hydropower, test & measurement, government initiatives, waterless toilets, sewage treatment etc.

    Furthermore, India ranks 133rd out of 180 nations for its water availability and 120th out of 122 nations for its water quality. It has been evaluated that 80 percent of India's surface water is polluted, which results in India losing US$ 6 billion every year due to water-related diseases. Challenges faced by the Indian water sector are due to increasing water consumption and wastage in urban areas, waterborne diseases, industrial growth, political and regulatory disputes, water cycle imbalances, increasing irrigation and agricultural demand, lack of technology etc. According to estimates, India's water sector requires investment worth US$ 13 billion.

Watertech Wastetech India 2018

National summit on water, wastewater treatment and solid waste management

  • The Indian economy is accelerating with increasing industrialisation, urbanisation and growing population, which will have massive implications on water and waste management. India faces major challenge in the water sector with availability going down and demand growing manifold, along with the challenge of managing the increasing quantity of waste being generated, which poses a threat to the environment. Water, wastewater and waste management are among some of the critical elements that will define whether a city is smart or not. These critical systems need to be intelligent, efficient and sustainable to make smart cities a reality. Government of India has launched a smart city mission for building 100 smart cities and adequate water and waste management. In view to this, Messe Frankfurt India is organising the 5th edition of "Watertech Wastetech India" national summit on water, wastewater treatment and solid waste management. The two day summit will bring together technical experts, government officials and utilities, researchers, engineers, academicians, industry, technology solution provider companies, NGO's and international development assistance bodies involved in water, waste water and industrial effluent treatment and solid waste management to exchange knowledge and gain insights in cutting-edge technologies to bring utilities to the next level.
