Project Overview

Water security implies adequate quantity and quality of safe water to ensure it for all types of users, including for sustainable livelihoods and healthy ecosystems. However, the adequate quantity and quality for healthy ecosystems is not easily defined or established. One approach for its definition is by estimating the riversÕ environmental flow and recognize it as a necessary water use.

Project Narrative

1. Ensure effective governance of water conservation, distribution and usage through active institutional arrangements and locally evolved regulatory measures 1.1 Promote participatory assessment of current water availability, functionality of sources, water use pattern. Assessing water availability and water budgeting. 1.2 Work with GPs and Village Water and Sanitation Committees to prepare Drinking Water Security Plans, taking into account source sustainability, water quality (both bacteriological and chemical), operations and maintenance (O&M) issues, and provisions for replacement and expansion. 1.3 Build rainwater harvesting and groundwater recharge structures and restore additional drinking water sources such as dug-wells, to enhance water availability. 1.4 Promote water quality monitoring and mitigation measures; contamination prevention measures at the source, system and household level monitoring using field testing kits as well as district or sub-divisional water quality laboratory testing. 2. Demonstrate community-led liquid waste management (grey and black water) systems 2.1 Demonstrate household based treatment, community-based collection and disposal systems 2.2 Involve community-based groups (for example, youth clubs, self-help groups (SHGs), mahila mandals) in waste management operations; 2.3 Scale up demonstration models with the help of government department. 3. Address water quality issue with participation from community, local institutions and government departments 3.1 Engage community members and local institutions in water quality monitoring by building their capacities on water quality treatment
