Due to the abundance of water on its surface, our planet is called the Blue Planet, composed of 75% water. There is only 1% of the total fresh water on earth that can be utilized.
Manipur's water crisis is not an exception. PM Modi's Jal Jeevan Mission seeks to provide clean tap water to every home by 2024. Hopefully, this mission will help Manipur in its water crisis
commented Dr Ranjan during his Chief Guest speech, which he delivered online from Delhi.
Massive deforestation due to anthropogenic factors including jhuming, poppy plantation, population growth etc. has taken place in the catchment areas of different rivers of Manipur. Because their forests' covers have dwindled, topsoil erosion has resulted in the shallowing of river beds, which ultimately have almost dried the rivers. The lowering of the Water table and disappearance of water bodies that are Flood reservoirs and sources of water during lean seasons have ultimately made Water scarce in Manipur. It is time for us to rethink our approach to restoring freshwater in Manipur. In spite of being one of the wettest places in the world, water is still a problem in Manipur. Water harvesting technology, Water budgeting and Water policy in Manipur are lacking. The sitting recommends the implementation of the above and also suggests a Workshop for arriving at an in-depth policy toward solving Water Scarcity in Manipur.
