The project has been developed under the EU-India Research project NaWaTech - Natural Water Systems and Treatment Technologies to cope with Water Shortages in Urbanised Areas in India, funded by the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission as well as the Department of Science and Technology (DST, Government of India) for cooperation in water technology and management. One of the activities (WP3) was the design and realisation of several demonstration sites with the aim to test and disseminate sustainable sanitation approaches targeted to the reuse of treated water in an urban context.
The College of Engineering Pune, where one of the demonstration sites is located, is one of the most relevant technological institutions in India; the opportunity for dissemination, training and education which this Intervention at the college can offer is clearly evident.
Pune is said to be the cultural and educational capital of the state of Maharashtra, with its high number of excellent schools and colleges attracting a great number of Indian students. With almost 5 million inhabitants, Pune demonstrates the typical characteristics and contradictions of Indian cities, with the coexistence of high-density, planned urban settlements and slum areas.
