I am working with the Water Resources Policy and Management area on sustainable and efficient management of water and waste water resources. I am part of the team working on water energy food nexus. I received the Australia Awards: Certificate in Strengthening Water Security and Cooperation in South Asia: Integrated Water Resources Management, 2018. I have been building relationships with the participants from India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Australia and New Zealand.
I am working on a multipartner (EU and India) Horizon 2020 project “PAVITRAGANGA” that focuses on tackling waste water management issues in urban areas on the Yamuna (New Delhi) and Ganga (Kanpur). Under this project I am responsible for the policy research and recommendation for the communication plan and execution. I am also leading the development of a training program for the Ministry of Home Affairs to provide training to personnel of Central Armed PoliceForces (CAPFs) on water conservation, including rain water harvesting techniques and recharge. I have been working on research for the sustainable development of the Himalayan Region and impact of climate on Himalayan cryosphere in my capacity as a Glaciologist and climate change expert.
