Australia India Water Security Initiative (AIWASI)

World Resource Institute / New Delhi, India

Commissioned by the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Australia-India Water Security Initiative (AIWASI) aims to work towards a resilient water sensitive city vision based on the holistic management of integrated water cycles. As the lead consultant of the AIWASI Community Demonstration Project (CDP) consortium, McGregor Coxall are tasked to establish bespoke water management and sanitation frameworks based on two pilot communities in New Delhi, India across a four-year design and implementation cycle.

The key objective of the project is to strengthen South-East Asian city-level water governance and propose tailored urban water solutions that support vulnerable and disadvantaged communities by granting them access to reliable, safe water and sanitation services. Phase one of the project details analysis and selection of two locations in New Delhi, employing spatial intelligence analysis and mapping to determine two suitable sites to design and demonstrate exemplar Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) and Nature-Based Solutions.
