Sam Pitroda implores that the water crisis not be thought of as an isolated issue, but in the context of scarcity of recourses and services many countries are now facing.
There will be no global solution to solve the water problem. Instead, communities will have to start finding local solutions that meet their specific needs. Key challenges facing populations are improving accessibility of water, water quality, and bettering infrastructure.
As many of the solutions to these problems will be local, Sam Pitroda believes in empowering communities to become self-reliant and encouraging change from within.
It is important to develop and increasing knowledge about conservation-minded irrigation systems, advanced farming techniques, and sanitation solutions.
People within proactive communities can make the difference, inspiring a people’s movement for affordable, scalable, and sustainable water solutions.
