National Water Mission (NWM) is one of the 8 missions under National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC). The main objective of NWM is “Conservation of water, minimizing wastage and ensuring its more equitable distribution both across and within states through integrated water resources development and management”. NWM has five goals as under: –

  1. Comprehensive water data base in public domain and assessment of the impact of climate change on water resources.
  2. Promotion of citizen and state actions for water conservation, augmentation and preservation.
  3. Focused attention to vulnerable areas including over-exploited areas.
  4. Increasing water use efficiency by 20%, and
  5. Promotion of basin level integrated water resources management. One of the strategies of NWM under Goal IV is to incentivise the organisations/companies through awards for water conservation and efficient use of water. Hence, the NWM has initiated the ‘Annual NWM Water Awards’ to recognize excellence in water conservation, efficient water use and sustainable water management practices.
