A total of US$126 billion is needed over the next 20 years to upgrade India’s water infrastructure. In order to meet these demands, the government of India has allocated $1 trillion for creating 100 smart cities and restoring 500 other cities and towns over the next five years. This includes clean water supply initiatives, effective ways in managing sanitation and waste, efficient mobility and public transport.

A total of US$ 2.7 billion has also been allocated to improve the state of Indian rivers. To approach the problem effectively, the Indian government has involved Panchayati Raj(rural self-governance) Institutions and included the people living near riverbanks, while helping them attain sustainable livelihoods. Key achievements of the initiative include creating sewage treatment capacity, river front development and surface cleaning. The programme is being implemented by the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) and State Program Management Groups (SPMGs) Moreover, 63 sewerage management projects have been implemented in Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, and West Bengal.

As part of the Swachh Bharat Mission, the government has built over 90 million household toilets and all 36 states and union territories have been declared open-defecation free.

The National Clean Air Program (NCAP) is a long-term national level strategy to tackle the increasing air pollution problem across the country. It is a city specific
air pollution abatement action plan for 100 most polluting cities of the country with a corpus of US$ 88.4 million.

India has announced its plans to implement a US$ 238 million National Mission on advanced ultra-supercritical technologies for cleaner coal utilization.

Special environment funds are looking to invest in green technologies, especially in enzymatic production routes and biopolymers. The total estimated market size of India’s pollution control industry will be around US$ 8.5 billion in a few years.

During the last three years, US$ 55 million have been released with a targeted afforestation of 1,12,780 hectare area, under the National Afforestation Programme. The Green Skill Development Programme focuses on developing skills among the youth in the environment and forest sector.

A new concept of resource conservation and environmental consumerism is emerging. In the last ten years, the Indian market has seen a continuous increase in demand for green products and processes. Advances in bio-renewables have the potential to create a significant impact in India, besides altering the sourcing landscape. A Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) has been set up, which solicits applications for funding environmental research and development projects.

Indian environmental entrepreneurs or ‘enviro-preneurs’ are providing a wide range of solutions in yield improvement and solvent recycling to minimise waste. Environmental startup Waste Ventures India, are working to avert up to 90% of waste from dumpsites and producing nutrient-rich organic compost. They sign multi-year contracts with local municipalities and employ waste pickers at their processing units to segregate waste. The Delhi-based startup, launched in 2011, has 44 projects lined up this year. Two of these have been kickstarted in Andhra Pradesh villages.

Chakr Innovations have designed the world’s first retrofit emission control device for diesel generators which emit large amounts of soot. The technology can capture over 90% of particulate matter emissions from the exhaust of diesel generators efficiently and right at the source, without causing any adverse impact on the engine.

Entrusted with a legacy of ecologically-sensitive civilizational values and armed with modern day innovation, India stands at a historical moment where it can definitively influence events towards environmentally sound outcomes.
