Govt launches slew of ambitious water projects to conserve water

The national government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched a slew of ambitious water projects recognising the urgency of water conservation along to provide tap water connections in all rural households in India.

One of the major global problems is Global Warming, and all the countries are struggling to cope with this difficult situation. Although India has 18% of the world's population, it only owns 4% of the world's renewable water resources.

To better manage the country's water resources, PM Modi has taken many critical steps to assure that there is a full stop to the wastage of water. To accomplish this, the PM has launched several water-saving projects.

PM Modi has presented a five-point formula to ensure that India does not suffer a water crisis in the future.

Firstly, the water-related departments were merged, or integrated. Secondly, in a diverse country like India, the emphasis was set on determining the nature of the plans while taking into account the ground situation in every area.

Thirdly, extreme care was taken to ensure sufficient water harvesting and water's proper distribution. Fourth, every drop of water should be used, and water recycling should be prioritised in the schemes. Lastly, public knowledge and engagement should be promoted.

The government has made many efforts to prioritise water governance. It has also launched separate ministries for water resources.

The Ministry of Jal Shakti was established in 2019 recognising the requirement for water conservation. Its objective is to enhance water management and supply safe drinking water to all citizens.

The Centre has adopted the Bhagirathi resolve and within five years, has taken the initiative to supply tap water to every rural household in the nation.

A successful journey consists of the individual stories of using indigenous water-saving methods, the action from conservation to harvesting, and the extension of Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) into crores of homes.

In India, the overall water availability by rainfall is 3,880 billion cubic metres (BCM) per year, as per the Reassessment of Water Availability in the Basin via Space Input Report-2020.

The availability of potable water is limited to 1,122 BCM per year owing to geological and other factors. The country's overall demand for 2025 and 2050 is expected to be 843 BCM and 1180 BCM, respectively.

The Jal Jeevan Mission mobile app was designed and put in the position to make work easier for all stakeholders. Sensor-based Internet of things (loT) solutions would be used for real-time monitoring to ensure adequate water delivery in communities regularly.
