Water, one of the key resources sustaining life and economic growth is said to be under stress owing to several drivers including population explosion and climate change. India home to 16% of the world population has access to about 4% of the total fresh water resources and is likely to face water scarcity owing to those drivers.

Evidence on the impacts of climate change on water resources in India suggests water scarcity, water quality loss, increase in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events especially droughts and floods, impacts on the water infrastructure and health, wide variations in the snowmelts of glaciers in the Himalayan region likely affecting the livelihoods of close to 900+ million population in the Indo Gangetic Plain region.
