The first one is a USD three million "Water for Health" Initiative. It is a new partnership between India's Department of Biotechnology (DBT) and IC-IMPACTS in which each will commit USD 1.5 million to create a joint "Water for Health" initiative to support collaborative research on new technologies in water and health.
The second is the Ganga River Collaboration project, a joint "Integrated Water Management for Ganga Collaboration Workshop" that was held in Delhi in February.
The National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) and IC-IMPACTS have prepared an action plan on research collaboration aimed at addressing the pollution and contamination of the Ganga.
Both organisations aim to showcase at least five different water treatment and monitoring technologies by 2018.
