Recent events highlighting nature’s wrath and the havoc caused by it, in both the North and South of the country have once again brought to the limelight, the importance of ensuring harmony with nature. The recent floods have reiterated the need for effective water resource management.

He was speaking at the celebrations to mark the Foundation Day of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research at CSIR-Indian Institute of Toxicology research. He said that sustainable water resource management has been debated for several decades but the basic question still remains, whether it is water scarcity or improper utilization of available water resources. Efforts are being made to improve the quality and quantity of water through technological interventions and a pragmatic management plan focused on recycling, reuse, and effective distribution has to be implemented, he said.
