Project Duration – May 2018-Dec. 2018
IORA assisted the Governments of Mizoram and Sikkim in developing their respective State Water Policies. The policies were drafted after reviewing the existing state policies and the National Water Policy’2012. The policies incorporate state specific water management needs, based on salient features of the National Water Policy and best practices of other state policies. They also align with the broad objectives of the National Water Mission. The new policies incorporate socio-economic considerations including gender aspects. They provide advisory on managing water efficiently, while ensuring equitable access.
