Collaborative Knowledge Exchange for Ganga Basin Management

Dec 20: The Executive Committee (EC) of the NMCG has approved the project “How relevant are the European River Rejuvenation experiences for the NGP and Indian Rivers?” to the Center for Policy Research (CPR) in its 43rd meeting held on 13th July 2022. The project was developed in pursuance of the objectives of the MoU signed between NMCG and CPR on 14th December 2021. The objectives of the proposal are as follows:

  1. Scoping and identification of focus areas of knowledge exchange between Europe and India (NGP)
  2. Implement the CPR-NMCG Collaborative Program for Institutionalized Research and Knowledge Exchange between Europe and India.
    The studies are presently underway in CPR.
    The Namami Gange programme being implemented by NMCG is based on the Ganga River Basin Management Plan prepared by a consortium of seven IITs. The technologies adopted for the implementation of various sewerage projects under Namami Gange are based on the Central Public Health and Environmental Engineering Organization Guidelines of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. However, NMCG has entered into MoUs with many countries, such as Germany, the Netherlands, Israel, Denmark, Japan, etc., for knowledge exchange on models of river rejuvenation. National Mission for Clean Ganga by the implementation of the above research-oriented study of CPR intends to analyze learnings from European experiences in the rejuvenation of rivers from broader policy and institutional aspects leading to collaborative knowledge exchange programmes with European institutions.
