Maharashtra: Growing Through Partnerships
The 2030 WRG signed a joint Expression of Interest with Hinduja Foundation and Sterlite Technologies Ltd. in February 2020.
Hinduja Foundation has a large focus on water through its Jal Jeevan program and plans to explore joint programmatic interventions in watershed development in rainfed/irrigated areas, restoration of water bodies, gender mainstreaming, and alternative financing mechanisms. Similarly, discussions are in progress to firm up a joint work plan for innovations in groundwater recharge in Aurangabad. Sterlite’s commitment to ensuring water security for the communities goes beyond building and maintaining water harvesting structures to water conservation awareness, sustainable agriculture training, and groundwater recharge to achieve increased water productivity and farm incomes.
