Urban Rainwater Harvesting Two day programme will focus on understanding the potential of water augmentation at building and/or neighbourhood scale. The training will impart skills on planning and designing both recharge and storage structures, techno-economic feasibility, operation and maintenance etc. Decentralised Wastewater Treatment Two day programme will focus on understanding potential of sustainable and affordable decentralised wastewater treatment (DWWT) systems for local reuse.
