State Water Policy

Water is a vital resource for all forms of life, and access to clean water is essential for basic human needs. This policy is to prepare a roadmap for equitable access to water for all basic human needs and to make a commendable effort toward ensuring that every individual has access to safe drinking water and water for irrigation. This draft policy emphasizes balancing environmental sustainability while catering to human needs, which is a crucial aspect of sustainable development.

Furthermore, the policy’s objective to enhance water governance in the state is a significant step towards improving water management practices. By focusing on ensuring sufficient water for all, the policy aims to address the issue of water scarcity, which has been a persistent concern in many regions.
