Excreta Matters: Media briefing and workshop on Gurgaon’s Water and Sewage

 Gurgaon has outgrown the image of a satellite town. It is now a thriving, sprawling and ever spreading city of its own accord, housing approximately 4-6 million people. The industrial and residential hub is obsessed about getting water, but where the wastewater is being dumped, has not caught the fancy of water planners.

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites you to participate in a media briefing and workshop, to analyze the water-excreta story of Gurgaon, based on first hand data collected.

This is first of the series of workshops and meetings around the CSE's latest Seventh State of India's Environment (SOE) report Excreta Matters (71 cities: a survey), which maps its past, current and future water-wastewater footprints. The aim is to find a sustainable and affordable paradigm of urban growth with regard to water and sewage.
