A virtual 3-part Webinar Series is being convened by 2030 WRG in collaboration with the Israel Economic and Trade Mission, World Business Council on Sustainable Development (WBCSD), India-EU Water Partnership (IEWP), and the Government of Maharashtra.

Reuse and recycle of treated wastewater are important to build climate resilience, enhance the circular economy of resources, and preserve livelihoods. To facilitate the reuse of treated wastewater for non-potable applications including agriculture, National Green Tribunal (NGT) has laid out stringent quality standards regarding effluent discharge into natural water bodies for the ULBs and Industrial treatment units across the country.

Webinar 2 will discuss mainstreaming the reuse of treated wastewater in agriculture through various integrated approaches and technologies including nature-based solutions, decentralized systems, sensors, and IoT-based solutions which may help encourage safer and sustainable agricultural production practices and usage.

Date and Time- Tuesday, 12 January 2021, 5 to 7:15 PM (IST)
