    USAID funded Third WASH Summer School on Effective and Efficient Water and Wastewater Management for Sustainable Cities

    Venue : TERI University
    Date : 21-23 June 2017

    Summary

    India?s urbanization has put a great stress on the water and sanitation utilities and there is a huge challenge in front of working professionals within the sector for completing the targets put forward by the Government of India under the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM). The WASH summer school is an initiative to strengthen the capacities among senior and mid-level officials from Urban Local Bodies (ULBs), Infrastructure related departments like public works and public health and planning and other stakeholders who are involved in Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). The third summer school is being organized by TERI University with the support from United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Coca Cola Foundation and the theme for this year is ?Effective and Efficient Urban Water and Wastewater Management for Sustainable Cities.

    This summer school involves exposure to cases which are termed as good practices in urban water supply and sanitation, policy orientation, sessions on RS/GIS based planning tools and techniques for water supply, and sanitation mapping. The talks would be delivered by experts and practitioners in the field.

    WASH Curriculum Development Workshop on 21-23 June 2017

    Venue : TERI University
    Date : 21-23 June 2017

    Summary

    The TERI University, in partnership with Coca Cola India and the support of USAID, is engaged in several activities related to the promotion of the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) agenda. This includes engagement of
    youth, capacity building of various stakeholders and facilitating
    innovation and implementation of sanitation services. One of the key gaps identified is the near absence of WASH issues in the curriculum of various degree programmes in India. To address this gap, TERI University is organizing a workshop on 21-22 June 2017, where academicians across India along with WASH practitioners deliberated on various aspects of strategies for infusing WASH topics in higher education curriculum. The outcome of these deliberations shall be an Interdisciplinary Curriculum and a Strategy Paper for mainstreaming of youth in WASH related activities.
     

    Short-Term Training programme on Data Science Applications for Sustainability

    Venue : TERI University
    Date : 10-12 July 2017

    Summary

    With the concept of a digital world taking precedence, our lives are being incessantly mapped and recorded in the digital realm. This, among other things, has led to availability of plethora of data that needs to be analysed in order to discover hidden patterns that are far from random. This is done through the field of Data Science. There are several definitions of data science available. Data science is considered to be an amalgamation of statistics, computer science, and application in various sectors. Large datasets of spatial and temporal information are assembled and manipulated in order to improve the understanding and management of complex systems. At its core, data science involves assemblage, management, and analysis of large spatio-temporal datasets for their translation into information that can eventually be used by decision makers for policymaking. Although data science is used in different domains, such as marketing, management, natural resource management, climate change studies, finances, development economics, among many others, an understanding of connection between the field of data science and sustainability is still limited.

    Both the field of sustainability and data science being fairly new fields, there are a limited amount of academic resources that have been written about synergy between the two topics. A few academicians and professionals, however, are already working in data science applications for sustainability. Keeping this in mind, there is a need to strengthen the knowledge base by conducting capacity-building training programmes. The application of data science on sustainability can be examined through the triple bottom line/pillars (environment, social, and economic) perspectives.
