Date: Wednesday, 14 September
Time: 08:30 – 10:00

This session is about sharing the experiences of collaboration between India and Australia in exercising a basin scale water resource management and planning approach.  The project started in late 2013 under the auspices of the Memorandum of Understanding on water between the governments of India and Australia. The basin selected was the Brahmani Baitarni Basin which spans three states, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Odisha in the north-east of India.  This session includes lessons learnt during the implementation of the project and the major outcomes in capacity building and in exploring future planning options for the basin’s water and agricultural resources.  Speakers representing the various jurisdictions within the basin, including State and Central government, will provide their perspectives on the path towards improved water resource management and how better outcomes can be achieved for all basin stakeholders.
