IIT Guwahati to collaborate with Australian organizations for water management reforms in India.

The Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Australia India Water Centre, and Western Sydney University virtually launched the first edition of the India Young Water on 29th November 2021. Speaking on the occasion, Indian High Commissioner, Manpreet Vohra said that water is a key priority area of collaboration between India and Australia and both countries are working actively on this front, while adding that the Young Water Professional Program is a significant milestone in the India-Australia relationship and will go a long way in institutional strengthening and capacity building.
Addressing the ceremony, T.G. Sitharam, the director of IIT Guwahati said, "This launch of the Young Water Professionals (YWP) program will be a great milestone for AIWC, IIT Guwahati, and Western Sydney University." He added, "India is not running out of water, in fact, water is running out of India'. However, the shortage in India is of storage, not of water. Even though Independent India since 1947 has built more than 5800 large dams, the storage is abysmally small. We need to look at newer opportunities through campaigns like 'catch the rain, where it falls and when it falls' launched by our Honourable Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi Ji under the National Water Mission."
