Abstract:
Chennai - a metro of India had recurring water shortages. In 2001 after an acute shortage, Shekhar Raghavan, a professor of physics reintroduced Rain Water Harvesting (RWH) systems. A citizen’s action group formed, educational institutions and corporates participated and the concept was promoted widely in the city. The state government was involved and RWH became a part of urban planning in Chennai. The people’s movement became a government’s initiative. A variety of promotions including door to door campaigns were carried out and technical assistance was provided for installations. The success of RWH brought international recognition to Chennai, and was the result of a workable idea, backed up with perseverance and community and government support.
