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 effects of climate change. Due to climate change we are having erratic rainfalls, cloud bursts, the rain days are decreasing, the droughts are drier and draining rivers, aquifers, and reservoirs. In urban as well as rural landscape, catchment areas are decreasing with large scale wetland degradation and poor water management. 

CLIMATE REALITY IS WORKING INTENSIVELY ON PROGRAMS LIKE TRADITIONAL RAINWATER HARVESTING SYSTEM AS WELL AS OFFLINE / ONLINE WORKSHOPS TO CREATE LOCAL WATER WARRIORS.

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.
