“Water is life's matter and matrix, mother, and medium. There is no life without water.” --Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
Water is responsible for life on earth. To elevate the quality of life and to meet our basic needs, we must work toward sustainable water management.
IDCA supports activities and projects to enhance efficient use of water. It supports non-government organizations engaged in developing water management resources in different regions of the world.
Besides scarcity of potable water at domestic front, IDCA also addresses other important water issues in agricultural, environmental, and industries.
What is the need of water management?
Water affects every aspect of life. IDCA supports NGOs and social entrepreneurs that work toward securing water supplies for sanitation and manage wastewater in homes and community. In a country like India, water management is hampered by social, governance, technical, and environmental factors.
IDCA is committed to support organizations for formulating long-term strategy and systematic change to meet water-related global challenges.
What activities do these organizations conduct for water management?
The collaborating partners of IDCA work toward improving the availability and quality of water. Together with villagers, these organizations install storage tanks, bio-sand filters, rooftop rainwater harvesting systems, and stand posts with water taps in homes, schools and community places to provide easy access to clean water. In addition, our partners also work to augment groundwater levels and effective wastewater disposal. Villagers are trained to manage and conserve water. On-field activities include disseminating knowledge on water security, water quality, participatory groundwater management, sanitation,and urban initiatives.
How does IDCA support?
IDCA provides an unmatched platform for the promotion of ideas of sustainable social initiatives at regional and national level. We provide networking opportunities to our partners, leading to their greater visibility, access to finance, credibility, partnerships, media attention, and policy changes.
We set strategic direction for organizations and offer best practices through sharing and collaboration, workforce development, engaging them through forums and networking with multiple stakeholders. IDCA provides an access to knowledge through sharing and mentor programs

"Let new India arise-let her arise out of the peasants' cottage, grasping the plough; out of the huts of fisherman,the cobbler, and the sweeper. Let her spring from the grocer's shop,from the oven of the fritter-seller." - Swami Vivekananda
