Our Vision

“Contributing Towards a Water Secure South Asia”

South Asia is endowed with vast water resources, yet the struggles around water scarcity and unequal access are perpetual. Global processes of urbanization and climate change are further contributing to this profound water insecurity. This challenge demands a holistic and integrated approach. SaciWATERs aims to achieve water security in South Asia through a holistic pro-poor human development approach.

About us

SaciWATERs, the South Asia Consortium for Interdisciplinary Water Resources Studies, is a policy research institute based in Hyderabad, India. From its inception in 2001, it has focused on critical issues related to water resources management in south Asia. A key endeavour at SaciWATERs has been to enhance the dominant water resources management paradigm in the region with a consideration of all issues using a pro-poor human development approach. The emphasis is on the accumulation of new knowledge through a combination of research, capacity building, and advocacy. Accordingly, it partners with universities and academic institutions from across global north and south to fundamentally reshape water resources knowledge systems in south Asia.
