About the Conference

Second International Conference on Sustainable Water Management is being organized by Water Resource Department, Govt. of Maharashtra during November 6-8, 2019 at Pune, Maharashtra, India. Growing pressure on water resources due to population growth, economic expansion, urbanization, pollution, and other challenges has major impact on our social, economic, and environmental well-being. Creeping effects of climate change are likely to aggravate the position by causing higher frequency & magnitude of extreme weather events as well as by changing the quantum & pattern of precipitation. Water stress gets even more compounded for countries like India with disproportionately low freshwater resources vis a vis population (i.e. 4% of global freshwater resources against 18% of global population) and per capita storage of only 210 cubic meters even when most of its annual precipitation of 4000 BCM falls in just three months. It is in this backdrop that the First International Conference on Sustainable Water Management was organized by Bhakra Beas Management Board (BBMB) during December 10-11, 2018 at Chandigarh/Mohali.
