About Us

The India Water Portal is an open, inclusive, web-based platform for sharing water management knowledge amongst practitioners and the general public. It aims to draw on the rich experience of practitioners and citizens who have worked on water issues and themes, and use the internet to disseminate this information and knowledge, to a wider audience.
We see the knowledge asymmetry amongst stakeholders of the water sector as a critical factor hampering the sustainable management of our water resources. The Portal seeks to address this asymmetry by sharing best practices, advocating sustainable approaches, bringing transparency of public data and information, and by spreading awareness.
The ultimate objective of the Portal is to address equity and sustainability issues in the water sector. Therefore, we are actively pursuing alternate outreach methods like print media, radio and workshops, to ensure this knowledge reaches those on the ground, who need it most. We believe that the India Water Portal has the potential to catalyse change on a large-scale by this sharing of knowledge leading to improved practices and informed debates.
The Portal grew out of the felt need for a single location pulling together various resources in the area of water. This was one of the themes that came out of the First Arghyam Conference held in February 2005. The National Knowledge Commission has been a strong proponent of the idea of knowledge portals in various areas, including water.
The Portal is a voluntary effort being coordinated by Arghyam, a non-profit trust that works in the area of water. The Portal is created in a spirit of sharing and openness by a wide range of partners including technical water experts, research institutes, NGOs, government departments, historians, hydro-geologists, IT specialists, educators and others.

The Portal is managed by a dedicated team, including both full-timers working from Arghyam’s office in Bengaluru and a group of consultants distributed across the country. Click here to view the profiles of India Water Portal team members.

Funding for the Portal is provided by Arghyam.

We are keen to involve many more partners to expand the knowledge base and the reach in the water sector. If you are working in the water sector and would like to join us, please do contact us at:
