Jal Shakti Abhiyan Guidelines PDF
Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) envisages availability and sustainable management of water for all by 2030. India is facing the challenge to serve 17% of the world population with 4% of the world’s freshwater resources. Presently designated as a water-stressed nation, India stores less than one-tenth of annual rainfall. Furthermore, the disproportionate use of water for agricultural use, excessive groundwater pumping, and deficient monsoon in the last couple of years make the demand-supply balance more critical. As per NITI Aayog, India is facing a water crisis with around 50% population experiencing a high-to-extreme water shortage.
In order to address water scarcity, it is important to undertake efforts for conservation, restoration, recharge, and reuse of water. In this pursuit, the Ministry of Jal Shakti (MoJS), Government of India is launching Jal Shakti Abhiyan (JSA) from 1st July 2019. Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) is participating actively in the Jal Shakti Abhiyan (JSA) along with States/UTs/ Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) to make water conservation measures a Jan Andolan.
