New York: “We need to implement projects on a long-term basis to use drinking water permanently,” said Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, the Union Minister of Drinking Water.
A meeting was held at the UN General Assembly on ‘Moving Towards the Water Resources Goal by 2030’. In it, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat said: In international action, the emphasis should be on balanced drinking water supply and wastewater action plans to achieve the water resource target by 2030.
110 crore people are suffering from lack of access to adequate drinking water. Make drinking water available to them without hindrance. At the same time, in the long run, action must be taken to prevent depletion of water resources. All people should have permanent access to drinking water. Due to climate change, the world is facing many problems such as drought and floods.
Against such challenges, schemes like watershed conservation, rainwater harvesting and water recycling are yielding good results. He spoke.
