Time & Location
About the Event
When some of our children in Punjab drink water laced with uranium and more and more groundwater in Bengal and Bihar has arsenic, we need to be seriously worried. One of the most important unaddressed challenges of water management in India is the deteriorating quality especially of drinking water. Through this webinar, Dr. Sunderrajan Krishnan, executive director of the INREM Foundation, addresses water quality issues and their interconnections with some of the most pressing issues of our times, like climate change. Krishnan has led a team of researchers working on the mitigation of fluorosis (dental enamel damage and skeletal deformities caused by excessive intake of fluoride) in Jhabua, in Madhya Pradesh, and showed that the disease is reversible. The webinar was moderated by Dr. Himanshu Kulkarni, executive director and secretary at ACWADAM, Pune. Dr. Kulkarni has been actively involved in the advocacy for stronger programmes on groundwater management in India.
