Mah govt join hands with WRG to launch Multi-Stakeholder Platform

Mumbai, Aug 7 (UNI) The state government and 2030 Water Resources Group (2030 WRG), in a pioneering move, today launched the Maharashtra Water Resources ‘Multi-Stakeholder Platform’
(Maharashtra Water-MSP) here, to address critical water resources challenges in the state.

The Maharashtra Water-MSP, chaired by the chief secretary Sumit Mullick, brings together key decision-makers from the public and private sectors and civil society to forge partnership for sustainable and scalable solutions, empowered by 2030 WRG’s hydro-economic analysis.

Emphasising the importance of a multi-stakeholder partnership approach, Mr Mullick stated that, "government can only solve the serious water problem with the active and enthusiastic participation of the private sector and civil society. We have an opportunity to work together, to ensure there is enough water for our farmers to
grow their crops, for our industries to provide employment and for the rivers to continue flowing. If Maharashtra is to keep growing while maintaining social equity and environmental sustainability, we need to not only balance competing needs but also significantly improve the efficiency of our water use."
Bijay Kumar, principal secretary to Agriculture and Horticulture, Govt of Maharashtra, said agriculture uses 80 per cent of the freshwater in the state and iterated the importance of devising strategies to grow agriculture while conserving water as much as possible.

"We need to ensure farmers have access to water and that they use it efficiently. This requires models for best practice and technology acceleration, finance facilitation and collaborative approaches for implementation, he added.
