Efficient Water Management: A Key to Building Smart Cities

Sep 04, 2017

According to Indian Ministry of Urban Development, 60% of India’s population will live in cities by 2050. This means that there will be stress on our cities to deliver more services with limited resources. With India’s rapid urbanization and growing population, water demand has already exceeded the supply. A smart city will need to ensure 24*7 uninterrupted supply of water for its development, which may not be possible if the current scenario persists. Therefore, it is very important to take measures to secure water through efficient water management systems. Grundfos India, one of the leading pump manufacturers in India, is therefore promoting the importance of efficient water management systems in building smart cities at the ‘3rd Water Innovation Summit 2017’ organized by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). “Smart Water Management: A Key Building Block of the Smart Cities & Villages of the Future” is the theme of this two-day summit taking place on September 4 and 5, 2017 in New Delhi.
