Water Conservation

Water is life. We have been listening to this phrase since time immemorial, but do we realize its importance for our sustenance. India along with some other nations is going through an unprecedented water crisis.

There are many factors that have led to this water crisis in our country, the major being the impacts of climate change. Due to climate change we are experiencing erratic rainfalls, cloud bursts, the number of rain days are decreasing, the droughts are drier and draining rivers, aquifers, and reservoirs. In urban as well as rural landscapes, catchment areas are decreasing with large-scale wetland degradation and poor water management. 

Climate Reality Is Working Intensively On Programs Like Traditional Rainwater Harvesting Systems as Well As Offline / Online Workshops To Create Local Water Warriors..

Success Stories

Rain Water Harvesting Project At Ambegaon, Pune

The Climate Reality Project - India under the able guidance of our National Coordinator for Water conservation, Col. Shashikant Dalvi (Retd.) launched the Rain Water Harvesting project in 04 districts of Pune namely,  Karegaon, Bhavadi, Kurwandi and Thugaon falling under Ambegaon Taluk. With the kind support from ICICI, MAPS, these districts started their journey from being water starved to water sufficient areas.

Rain water Harvesting Project at Kamkheda Village, Beed District

Beed is one of the worst drought hit districts of the Marathwada region in Maharashtra. The rainfall pattern here is uneven. The region also saw the effects of el-nino phenomenon from 2010-2017. 

Tens of thousands of Beed residents have no choice but to struggle hard to source the basic necessity – water. With the help of our National Coordinator for Water Conservation,  Retd. Col. Shashikant Dalvi, the pilot project to make Beed district water sufficient, was started. A number of awareness programs were conducted on rain water harvesting for the villagers and members of Gram Panchayat of Kaamkheda village in Beed. In April 2018, it was decided to start the implementation of the program in the village. The project was also supported by MAPS Industries (I) Pvt. Ltd. Pune.

The project has shown good results and we believe that soon the district will become water- tanker free. The state government is also replicating this project in other Talukas.

We are already facing a water crisis, and climate change is making it worse. 

With ever-increasing water demand coupled with unpredictable weather conditions, frequent flooding, severe droughts, heatwaves and water tables going down, climate change impacts our water. It will hit hard on water availability for human use. 


Water conservation and its management play an essential role to fight climate crises. With the current crisis, significance of water conservation becomes even more important. As we are all aware, hygiene is fundamental to our fight against the current pandemic whether it’s washing hands, sanitization or wearing a mask. So, come forward and do your bit, conserve water, practice safety and hygiene and help fight in this war against the pandemic. 

Taking a step towards solving the water crisis, we support MISSION PANI, an initiative towards saving water and sustaining it for the generations to come. Let’s save more water together. Learn More
