6 major Indian cities will run out of water by 2030: Expert warns

Hyderabad, Oct 4 (UNI) Prof Asit K Biswas, a leading authority on water and natural resources management, apart from being the distinguished visiting Professor of Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (National University of Singapore), on Thursday warned that at least six Indian major cities will run out of water by 2030.Poor policies have left India in one of the worst positions in the world when it comes to water stress, Mr Biswas cautioned in his keynote address at the inaugural session of the International conference on 'Global Water Security for Agricultural and natural Resources,' organised by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE), in partnership with the Indian Society of Agricultural Engineers (ISAE), here.
''We have brilliant people, but will not allow them to do,'' he said, adding that India is no exception to this global trend. Signs of water stresses are all over the country, both in terms of availability and quality.
The situation in India is worse than in many other countries due to decades of poor policies and practices, said Mr Biswas, who founded the Third World Centre for Water Management in Mexico and advised 19 governments and organisations in 40 countries.
