合作的美国, Singapore Cooperation Enterprise and Temasek Foundation to expand 印度’s water infrastructure across states and local urban areas.
The National Institution for Transforming 印度 (NITI Aayog) recently selected CH2M, in collaboration with Singapore Cooperation Enterprise (SCE) and Temasek Foundation (TF), 分享城市规划方面的最佳实践 & 治理, 水 and 废水 Management and Solid Waste Management, as part of a three-year programme to increase the capacity of 印度’s infrastructure. The programme includes a series of highly interactive workshops and advisory sessions focused on sharing best practices implemented in Singapore, 在国际上也是如此.
“We are honored to bring our expertise to the development of 印度’s water infrastructure,” said CH2M Global 水 Business Group President Peter Nicol. “Delivering integrated solutions for water and wastewater remains critical to advance urban management programmes supporting 印度’s growth as a major world economy.”
2016年4月推出, the goal of the NITI Aayog programme is to share Singapore’s water management technology and project implementation experience with senior officers from various government agencies dealing with the critical drought situations in many parts of 印度. CH2M is pleased to help deliver this programme by providing full access to thought and knowledge leaders in integrated water resource management (IWRM), 饮用水处理质量, public/stakeholder engagement and advanced water recycling. The project team will leverage successes and learnings from similar projects in larger cities, 如德里, 班加罗尔和斋浦尔. This initiative by NITI will introduce a new paradigm for water infrastructure and help cities and agencies to diversify 印度’s water resources portfolio with increased water resiliency.
第一个车间, 2016年6月举办, was attended by more than 70 high ranking officials from urban agencies within seven different states in 印度. The workshop team solicited participant input through pre-workshop questionnaires, discussed key challenges faced by these implementing agencies, shared success stories from Singapore and other international case studies, and discussed how those solutions can be adapted to 印度. Interactive discussions were also generated in the areas of project delivery, supply chain management in infrastructure projects, and financial sustainability of utilities in 印度.
“This is really the age of cities due to huge migration; these cities contribute significantly to the global gross domestic product (GDP) contribution. This process of urbanization poses a challenge of how 印度 can achieve urbanization in a sustainable manner for others to follow. The key challenge in 印度 is not lack of water but the sheer lack of management of water. 因此, it is important that we learn from the experience of a country like Singapore about the art of conservation of water, 水权定价, water recycling and the use of IWRM practices. 印度各邦可以向CH2M学习这门艺术, which is one of the world’s most outstanding companies in water sector. The kind of experience they bring to the table is a rare expertise; so do utilize this opportunity today to learn and benefit from the best experts in the world,”先生说. Amitabh Kant, Chief Executive Officer of NITI Aayog.
CH2M has worked closely with SCE delivering similar programmes for major water infrastructure projects in Jaipur, Taloja (Maharasthra), 新德里和班加罗尔, 作为主要的技术顾问和顾问.
