International Course on Water & Society 2019 @ IIT Roorkee [Jan 3-24]: Register by Dec 20: Expired

About the Course

Due to rapid increase in population, the demand for water continues to increase globally in almost all sectors. However, the temporal and spatial variability of the available water resources can no longer be taken for granted particularly under changing climate. Heavy water consumers such as agriculture and industry often contribute to its contamination.

In urban areas, huge quantities of sewage wastes are generated every day and discharged directly to rivers contaminating their water and its consumption badly affects the health of human beings thriving on it. Water distribution networks and soiled water collection systems pose serious problems and there is a need to maintain ageing infrastructures mostly in urban areas.
