Uniting pools of knowledge for water resources in India.
India Water Portal (http://indiawaterportal.org) is a collaborative effort with participation from numerous NGOs, government institutions, corporate, universities and individuals. It is a completely free and open platform, for the dissemination of knowledge, and discussion/debate on water issues.
The portal contains more than 1200 ‘knowledge levers’ in the forms of case studies, slide shows, movies, courses, interviews, talks, policy documents, etc. covering the range of water-related topics. The commitment to reduce both digital and content asymmetry prevalent in India has been balanced on IWP through the emphasis on Indian language portals, Multimedia courses and Radio programmes. Some of these include Hindi and Kannada pages, ‘Ask the experts’ service and the Schools Water Portal.
