The Water Governance Standard: Towards an Investment-Smart Rural Water Sector - Webinar and Book Release
1. 600 million Indians face high to extreme water stress, according to NITI Aayog. Since independence, freshwater per capita has decreased 70%. India's water crisis is galloping. If we want to meet our needs and nature's sustainably, we must change our behaviour and attitude toward water.
2. The Water Governance Standard (WGS) aims to incentivise and nudge rural communities and investors alike to adopt water-smart attitudes and behaviours, while also channelising the necessary financial and technical resources to these communities.
3. The WGS rates communities based on their water management and governance practices, with ratings ranging from Bronze to Platinum, and provides communities with a "water score" similar to a credit score.
4. The WGS also helps identify areas for improvement in a community's overall water management and governance.
