    [This is the revised version of the discussion author had as a Panelist at the IUKAN Conference 2014 held in New Delhi on 13 February 2014.]
    Current models of urban planning and water management are exceedingly proving insufficient from the perspective of cost effectiveness, technical performance, social equity, and environmental sustainability. Hence a paradigm shift is required at the system-wide level in the form of Integrated

  8. SMEs and Indian Economy: : Harnessing Youth Potential the Only Way Out
    Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) sector is considered as the spine of India’s burgeoning economy and it is the single largest sector to absorb country’s fast growing young workforce. Undoubtedly, India’s GDP growth was 54% between 2005 and 2012; nevertheless, its job growth was only 3% at 15 million net new jobs. Broad estimates show that prevalent disconnects between the GDP and job growth is likely to worsen further in the next decade,

  9. Potable Tap Water Still a Chimera in India!
    No matter where you live in India, you will always be cautious about drinking water. The first thing you will fix in the house is an aqua purifier, simply because you don’t want to take a chance when it comes to your health. And if you can afford it, why not? The concerns are not unfounded, drinking tap water can give you more than a Delhi belly. In this article, we talk about tap water in India, harping more on the capital c

  10. SMEs: A Catalyst to Transform Youth
    By 2020, the median individual age in India will be 29 years, very likely a city-dweller, making it the youngest country in the world. India is set to experience a dynamic transformation as the population burden of the past turns into a demographic dividend, but the benefits will be tempered with social and spatial inequalities. With the West, Japan and even China aging, this demographic potential offers India and its growing economy an unprec

  11. Sustainable Development via Water Cooperation in South Asia
    South Asia comprising Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Males, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka having more than 21 percent of the world’s population, the region has access to just over 8 percent of global water resources. It is currently faced with a water shortage and water security crisis. Average water availability per capita across South Asia has declined by 70 percent since the 1950s, and continues to decrease.

  12. Climate Change Effect on Health -Has India Highest Burden of Malnutrition?
    In South Asia, the pace of sanitation improvements has not kept up with population growth: in 2010 the region had about 1,057 million people without improved sanitation. Worse, 692 million people in South Asia have no toilet at all, and defecate in the open. In India alone, some 625 million people practice open defecation. The objective of achieving the sanitation MDG target appears apparently a near-impossible task given the trend over the pa

  13. SMEs can Play Key Role in Ensuring Food Security
    SMEs, as major drivers of growth engine, are destined to play pivotal role in ensuring food security. SMEs with a fund of infrastructure can provide adequate storage facilities in towns adjacent to agriculture-rich areas, open retail distribution outlets for quality seeds and fertilizers for the farmers in cooperation with local banks and cooperatives and also provide transportation facilities for the movement of food grains and other edibles.

  14. Indus Water Treaty Conundrum : India’s Water Offensive May Have Serious Implications
    In the prevailing circumstances, any stern measure can entail serious implications for India in its haste to teach Pakistan a lesson. Rather focus should be on the catastrophic consequences of climate change and impending water crisis facing South Asia as a whole. International community should be convinced by India of the need for regional cooperation involving all countries to meet jointly the challenges rather than confront each other a
