Demand for clean drinking water is increasing across the world. According to the UN World Water Development Report, three out of ten people do not have access to safe drinking water. In developing countries like India, the water and sanitation scenario are a matter of serious concern. The EU-India-funded PAVITR project will develop and deploy cost-effective and sustainable solutions to ensure the implementation of technologies from Europe to India, which can be scaled up for government entities and investors to provide safe water reuse, rejuvenate water quality of rivers, and restore ecosystems in India. According to the project, the development of technologies to cope with water shortages in rural and urbanised areas in India will also benefit Europe where climate change is expected to induce an uncertain precipitation pattern and an enhancement in temperature.
