Environment (Water)

India is home to 18 percent of the world’s population but only 4 percent of its water resources. The country is suffering a significant water crisis with economic growth, livelihoods, human well-being and ecological sustainability at stake. Wastewater pollution from industry and households is putting pressure on the already scarce resources.

As a progressive leader in wastewater management, the Danish Environmental Protection Agency is planning a Strategic Sector Cooperation (SSC) with the Government of India to help tackle this urgent issue. Danish strongholds in this sector comprise of river basin management, environmental water quality monitoring, management of point-source pollution and dialogue-based compliance promotion toward industry.
