  • <br /> Directions <br /> Provide a brief overview of the company managing this project. <br /> <br /> We encourage you to include pictures and/or short videos on this or any slide to further support your message. <br /> <br /> <br /> Example <br /> After conducting extensive research in the field we find that current models of potable water delivery wasted at least 5 cubic liters per trip and served mostly urban areas. <br /> <br /> Through an innovative system of delivery access point managed by local entrepreneurs, the Water Access project can service up to 10x more families and reduce water waste by 50%. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
  • <br /> Directions <br /> Discuss the types of partnerships that you think will help this project upscale and/or overcome challenges. Aim to make a specific request of a stakeholder group as outlined in the example. <br /> <br /> Briefly describe the value to participants of engaging with this project. It also best to be specific here. <br /> <br /> <br /> Directions <br /> Discuss the types of partnerships that you think will help this project upscale and/or overcome challenges. Aim to make a specific request of a stakeholder group as outlined in the example. <br /> <br /> Briefly describe the value to participants of engaging with this project. It also best to be specific here. <br /> <br /> <br /> Example <br /> Partners Sought <br /> Corporate partner who can provide volunteers for 6 months to train additional entrepreneurs to become water access points in local areas <br /> Academic partner who can help develop a framework to evaluate impact <br /> <br /> Benefits of participation: <br /> Visibility of company and organization in tier II and III cities. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
  • <br /> Directions <br /> Use this space to pose any questions or suggest any topics you would especially like to be discussed during the project clinics. <br /> <br /> <br /> Example <br /> <br /> How can we extend the staff’s capacity to implement the project in additional regions? <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
  • Wello is a disruptive social venture with a bold mission: to deliver clean water to a thirsty world. In collaboration with our intended users, we create low-cost solutions to transport, store, and purify water.
  • See the water crisis is complicated. It’s not just about clean water, but also about accessing water. <br /> <br /> Imagine if I asked you to put your checked luggage (approx. 20 kilos) on your head and walk from India Gate to this auditorium. That’d be difficult right? <br /> <br /> Hundreds of millions of women and girls across the world make a similar trek every day in order to collect water, but they struggle to meet their families’ needs. Combine the health consequences of not having enough water with the physical and time burden of carrying it, and you’ve got the makings of a dire situation. <br /> <br /> The WaterWheel is a 50L rolling drum that eases the burden of water collection, allowing users to transport 3-5x more water in one trip than using traditional methods. <br />
  • Over the next year, Wello is developing a low-cost filtration solution and shipping efficient design to scale our impact. <br /> <br /> How many times have you wished for an extra hour in the day? For the women and girls that we work with, an extra hour or two can mean going to school or earning more money. <br /> <br /> In our next 5 years of operations, Wello aims to deliver this kind of opportunity to 1 million people across the world. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> In an ideal world, there would be abundant water running through taps in every household, but that’s far from reality, so in the meantime, let’s make water easier to access where it already exists and encourage both men and women to share in the responsibility. <br />
  • We’ve spent the past 9 months rigorously piloting the WaterWheel across 4 locations in India. We’ve brought positive change to over 300 lives, to WaterWheel owners like Gita, who spends significantly less time waiting for her local slum tap to turn on and more time quilting and turning in recyclables for an income. <br /> <br /> We recently secured funding to take our business to the next level – scaling manufacturing. <br /> <br /> Our biggest challenge at this time is conducting experiments to better understand our customer segments and their willingness to pay, as well as gaining in depth understanding of our impact. <br /> <br /> <br />
  • We’re seeking partners – corporate, NGO, and everything in between – to get 5000 units out across India in 2014, through projects specifically targeting education, income generation, agriculture, and sanitation. <br /> <br /> The WaterWheel turns heads and gets people talking – we know that. When you buy WaterWheels for your project areas, Wello will provide company-branded wheels or wheels with social marketing messages of your choice. Think of it as a rolling billboard, that with help from Wello and an implementing NGO, will deliver impact, provide consumer insights at the BOP level, and take your brand deep into the rural market.
  • We’re constantly seeking new ways of applying the WaterWheel in business-oriented partnerships. For example, can the WaterWheel be used to deliver milk to/from a dairy cooperative and how can we incentivize everyone involved? <br /> <br /> The possibilities are endless, and I’d love to hear your thoughts. <br /> <br /> Thank you so much for your time.

New Alliances for Water and Sanitation- India Collaboration Lab Innovation Pitch Sessions New Alliances for Water and Sanitation- India Collaboration Lab Innovation Pitch Sessions Presentation Transcript

  • India Collaboration Lab: New Alliances for Water and Sanitation Innovation Pitch Session Presentations 22 October 2013 New Delhi, India
  • DLF Foundation Lt. Gen Rajender Singh, PVSM,SM,VSM (Retd.) CEO, DLF Foundation singh-rajender@dlf.in
  • About DLF Foundation  DLF Foundation was established in 2008 as the philanthropic arm of DLF Limited as a charitable organization, under the direct patronage of Mr. K.P. Singh, the Chairman of the DLF Group. The Foundation believes in ‘Building India’ from the grass roots by fostering innovative strategies in the fields of Education, Employment linked Skill Development, Healthcare, Infrastructure Development, Community Development, Labour Welfare and Environmental Sustainability.  The Foundation has launched three major flagship initiatives such as (a) Skill a Million Programme, (b) Nurturing Talent Programme and (c) Village Cluster Development Programmes.
  • Major Flagship Programs
  • Urban Water Management under Gurgaon Renewal Mission  Vision: Making Gurgaon a Water Neutral City  Project Duration: Ongoing  Project Objectives:  To take direct visible action to contribute towards groundwater recharge.  To inculcate habit among residents to stop wastage of water.  To mobilise and align all stakeholders towards contributing to the issue.  Beneficiaries: Gurgaon Citizens, RWAs, HUDA and MCG officials
  • Seminar on Water Management in Gurgaon
  • Need of the project  Haryana is a water deficit state and the deficit is only likely to become more acute unless a composite action plan involving all stakeholders is evolved now. Gurgaon also faces vital infrastructural and utility services and water scarcity is one of them.  The water experts present at the seminar chalked out a number of recommendations and suggestions during a day long deliberations.  The seminar under GRM was attended by state government officers, retired officials, academicians and representatives of NGOs, private developers, consultancy firms RWAs and the media.
  • Population and Water Demand (according to government statistics) Population Water Demand Present Population (Year 2012) 15.70 lac persons 80 MGD Floating Population (Year 2012) 2.00 lac persons Included above Projected Population By year 2021 37 lac persons 232 MGD By year 2025 40 lac persons 305 MGD
  • Population and Requirement (according to civil society estimate) S.No. Description Population Requireme nt in MGD Requireme nt in Cusecs Area 1 Present 23 Lac 176 MGD 325 Sector 1 - 57 2. Projected 2015 30 Lac 238 MGD 440 Sectors 1 - 67 3. Projected 2021 40 Lac 313 MGD 580 Sector 1 - 98 4. Projected 2025 50 Lac 388 MGD 720 Sectors 1- 115 5. Projected 2031 60 Lac 450 MGD 830 Due to increase in FAR of existing areas
  • Action, Success, Impact and Challenges  Action: DLF Foundation has created 45 water harvesting structures around the city.  Success and Impact: The water harvesting structures have been successful in groundwater recharge.  Challenges: Involvement of community to address the water issues  How to inculcate attitudinal change and how to upgrade and include technical partnership.  How to undertake reduction of wastage and equitable distribution of water.
  • Next steps  Ensure adequate supply of drinking water through water treatment plants, storage facilities and distribution network. Local administration to expedite construction of these facilities.  Raw canal water and tertiary treated sewage to be made available to the developers so that ground water is not used for construction and development of the city and does not come to a stand still.  Promote sector wise water harvesting by HUDA and private developers. Efforts to be made to harvest rain water flowing from roads also.  Recycled water through dual plumbing should be used instead of drinking water for car washing, irrigating lawns and plantations, washing of corridors/ passages and for construction work.  All STPs should be upgraded to tertiary levels. Small units of STPs can be created at the places where large scale use of recycled water can be made. This would reduce transportation cost of water.  For large scale construction activity, raw sewage connection should be given so that it is treated and reused for construction.
  • Recommendations  All government buildings, commercial complexes and multistoryed residential complexes must have rainwater harvesting system in place immediately.  Rooftop water harvesting in individual houses must be done through storm water drains. All run off should be collected in reservoirs, treated and distributed.  The state water policy should find a solution to interdepartmental problems and ensure better accountability among department of irrigation and public health, HUDA and Municipal bodies controlling water supply to various target groups.  Pricing policy to be used to prevent wastage of irrigation water.  Recycling of sewage water will save ground water table from further decline. Water to be saved by covering Western Jamuna Canal with solar panels.  Three dams to be built to resolve the water scarcity not only in Gurgaon but in the entire state of Haryana.
  • Partnerships  It is proposed that partnership with HUDA, MCG, State Irrigation Department, Corporates, RWAs and civil society should be undertaken to resolve distinct water issues in the city and across the state of Haryana.  DLF Foundation through GRM project to stimulate this process and achieve meaningful results.
