How can Danish water solutions assist India’s ambitious goals for an inclusive, sustainable development in the water sector?
Thursday January 16, 50 people joined us at Grundfos, Bjerringbro, to discuss the challenges, opportunities and concrete next steps in the Indo-Danish collaboration on water.
With Danish and Indian representatives from the entire value chain, consultants and manufacturers, ministries and associations, the basis for a fruitful discussion were indeed in place.
Challenges, opportunities and bilateral collaborations
The first part of the program was focusing on challenges, opportunities and bilateral collaborations. After six presentations covering G2G and C2C collaborations, new inititatives from the Danish Embassy in India’s Trade Council and financing opportunities, the conclusion remained that Danish solutions can indeed assist India in its endeavour towards an inclusive sustainable development.
Second part of the program was a roundtable discussion where concrete next steps were discussed. Moderated by Grundfos’ Morten Riis, Group Director, Water Utility, the settings were effective and the discussions fruitful.
To our luck, a delegation from the Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying from India joined us and provided much appreciated insights on the Indian bureacracy.
IDCC would like to thank all the participants, H.E. Ambassador Ajut Gupte, all the speakers and presenters and Grundfos for hosting this important event in their beautiful sorroundings in Bjerringbro.
