The Water Practitioners Network (WPN) is a grassroots initiative to promote the adoption of a paradigm shift in water management among water practitioners including water users, civil society organisations, researchers, institutions and policy makers. It provides a knowledge-sharing platform through the identification of a range of best practices and proofs of concept which would facilitate such a paradigm shift in the management of water resources in India.
THE MAKING OF WPN
There are a large number of organizations and individuals who are engaged, both at the levels of policy as well as practice, with several issues in the water sector but there is limited or no dialogue between these diverse sets of stakeholders. In this context, Samaj Pragati Sahayog (SPS) has facilitated a network of water practitioners, actively engaged with the agenda of democratisation of water both at the grassroots as well as at policy levels.
