My City – My Water

The Chennai Water Forum hosted by Goethe Institut Chennai was an open platform to address the issue of water, urbanization and ecology with a multidisciplinary approach. It was conceptualized as three days of participatory workshops, panel discussions, presentations, exhibitions and concerts
to bring together people from a cross-section of varied backgrounds and create a new dialogue on water and rivers in Chennai and also to change mindsets and encourage action for change.

UDC was invited to conduct a workshop titled ‘Mapping Water in Chennai – The Future in Our Hands’ on day 2 of the forum.
This report is a documentation of the workshop for various stakeholder groups with the aim of arriving at recommendations for improved protection and management of our water resources. The workshop was designed to yield results at many levels- design & planning, technological, governance, innovation and engineering.
