Water Resources Management

The 2015 theme for the World Environment Day celebrated every year on June 05 is sustainable consumption and production. It focuses on how the wellbeing of humanity, environment and economies ultimately depends on the responsible management of the planet’s natural resources. The slogan for the theme is ‘Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care’.

In consonance with the theme of World Environment Day PetroFed organized a lecture on ‘Water Resources Management for Sustainable Development’ by Prof. Janardhana Raju, Professor of Environmental Geosciences at the School of Environmental Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University on June 5, 2015 at New Delhi.

Prof. Raju, who is an expert on Groundwater Hydrology and Environmental Geosciences focussed on harvesting, conservation and application of surface water. The importance of these issues was brought out by him by pointing out the fundamental right to freshwater is not exercised by about 3.5 billion women and men across the world according to the UN World Water Development Report 2014. There is enough water on earth – we need to manage it better.

The great interest was evinced by participants in the subject particularly on the issue of water harvesting.
