This Policy Brief was first published in https://t20ind.org


Various government initiatives aim to realise water security and conservation for sustainable development and equity. The Government of India’s Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM), for example, in line with the global ‘Sustainable Development Goal (SDG): 6’, is targeting the water security of individuals in the last mile of service delivery. JJM recognises water security in terms of sustainable and adequate water quantity and quality. This Policy Brief highlights the innovative interventions in the Palghar district of Maharashtra that aim to address water scarcity problems in tribal habitations. It offers evidence-based recommendations for G20 members regarding how such low- cost approach to water conservation can be envisioned that can contribute to improving human health and sustainable development by reducing coping costs and drudgery associated with water collection.
