Quantifying water risks for industries

In partnership with Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), CWC and CIPT conducted a first of its kind national level geo-spatial study on water risks, perceptions and mitigation plans across 27 industrial sectors. The study found that different industrial sectors have different risk profiles and exposure in specific geographical context. At least one in five multi nationals in the most water intensive industrial sectors is already experiencing damage to their business from drought, water shortages, flooding and rising cost of water.

CIPT is engaging with industries to develop water sustainability plans to address water risks at given sites based on a comprehensive assessment of long term water supply and demand, aquifer studies and community perceptions.
