The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has recently released its seventh State of India's Environment titled Excreta Matters. In this report we have analysed the water-sewage situation in 71-cities across India, including Bengaluru, to provide decision makers a detailed description of the problems associated with urban India, and to map where cities get their water and where their waste goes. We believe this understanding is critical to find a sustainable and affordable paradigm of urban growth.
We are launching the report at a workshop in Bangalore on 28th June, 2012 to be held from 9:30 AM till 1 PM at The Capitol Hotel, No 3 Raj Bhavan Road. Arghyam, Bangalore, a philanthropic foundation working on domestic water and sanitation around the country, is supporting and partnering us for this event.
