Eco India

Water is vital to all life on Earth

Water is vital to all life on Earth. But across the globe, water scarcity is becoming more and more of a problem. What can we do to preserve water and make sure everyone has enough? We explore in Eco India.

Bringing back water in the Indian Himalayas 

Ghost villages in the Indian Himalayas are becoming increasingly common as water sources dry up. Climate change is threatening the “water tower of Asia”, but one community has found a way to bring back the ground water. 

Ancient Indian water bodies brought back to life 

The Indian city of Jodhpur is home to hundreds of ancient water bodies which used to be the main source of water. Today India’s oldest rainwater harvesting systems lie dilapidated. But one man is trying to change that. 

Using nature to clean the Citarum River 

Plastic, waste, toxic black sludge - the Citarum River in Indonesia is the most polluted river in the world. Organizations are looking to nature to find solutions to get it back to its natural state. 


Technology that looks to recycling water 

As water resources dwindle, there’s a move towards technology that can recycle the water we already use. Water Campus Leeuwarden brings together ideas – one that’s already being used by Dutch families.
