SWAN Forum and Safe Water Network Partner to Showcase Smart Water Benefits across India

Mar 21 2021 Read 324 Times

The Smart Water Networks Forum (SWAN) is thrilled to announce its recent partnership with Safe Water Network (SWN), a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing access to safe and reliable clean drinking water in developing economies. SWAN and Safe Water Network are partnering to promote the relevance of smart, data-driven solutions and benefits for water and wastewater networks across India and other water-stressed markets. 

 Safe Water Network has implemented more than 450 decentralised small water enterprises focused on improving local management and safe water services performance. Over the years, remote monitoring has been applied to reverse osmosis treatment systems at many of these sites, thus enabling reliable field-staff communication and proactive maintenance. 

Commenting on this partnership, Poonam Sewak, VP of Programs & Partnerships at SWN India, remarked: “We succeed in empowering women as operators, or entrepreneurs in our affordable, safe water program, on the strength of technology and data. It has led to exponential growth within India. With this SWAN partnership, we are confident we can apply this model across other parts of the world.”

Fredrick Royan, a SWAN Council Member and Chair of the SWAN India Alliance, said: “The digital solutions and monitoring are increasingly playing an important role in accelerating the water supply services deployment, scale-up and resiliency. The SWAN Forum is excited to collaborate with Safe Water Network on accelerating smart water implementation across developing economies.” 

SWAN’s VP Strategy & Innovation, Shirley Ben-Dak added: “We are actively looking to make substantial advancements in changing the perception of smart water as only relevant and operational in the developed world. By partnering with leading organisations such as Safe Water Network, we can help ensure that smart water benefits are not isolated and that relevant, cost-effective technologies are assisting those living and working in critical, water-stressed environments.”
