PAVITR is a joint project of the European Union and the Department of Sciences & Technology of the Government of India. It contributes to solving water and sanitation problem. The project’s main aim is validate, deploy or develop cost-effective & sustainable solutions in the following fields:

  • to tackle water challenges
  • ensure the provision of safe water reuse
  • rejuvenate water quality of rivers
  • and restore ecosystems in India.

The project aims to achieve this by deploying and developing water and wastewater technologies and by using sensors for contaminants. But PAVITR goes beyond that: It also considers new strategic planning tools and creates a basis for financial, environmental, and institutional sustainability. PAVITR aims at developing and bringing to the market a cost-efficient, multi-barrier water management approach that can attract investors and funding agencies into the sector.
