The India-UK Water Centre (IUKWC) launched its first set of Grassroots Field Exposure Sessions in West Bengal on 10th December 2018 to understand the pressures on the water resource in some of the state’s rural and urban environments. The two events were spread over six days and involved visits to North 24 Parganas, South 24 Parganas and Kolkata Municipal areas. The joint Indian and UK scientific teams spent time in Gosaba and Sandeshkhali blocks and at various sites in and around Kolkata including the Ganga Ghat, local industrial water users and East Kolkata Wetlands.
The India-UK Water Centre is convening two workshops in 2019, and is inviting applications from the diverse water sciences, engineering, management, innovation and development sectors based in India and the UK to attend.
