Published By: Observer Research Foundation, Mumbai | Published Date: May , 2016

Mumbai has the potential to become one of the world’s ideal cities in terms of sustainable water management. With abundant natural and perennial water sources around it, the megacity is currently one of the most secure metropolises in the country in terms of water availability. However, a very critical issue in satisfying the ever increasing demands of its teeming millions and overcoming the consequent complex challenges is of sustainable water management. This report has used a combination of official primary data gathered through consultations and interviews, and relied on authentic secondary inputs to understand the current complexities and future challenges. It analyses the supply and demand aspects, focuses on the critical technical, financial and societal challenges, and uses a number of local, Indian and international case studies and recommends a series of short-, medium- and long-term measures to make Mumbai a water sustainable city.
