In India, home to over one billion people, drinking water is becoming scarce. We investigated various approaches to water problems: in Rajasthan we witness the revitalization of the traditional water management: via traditional fountains in the desert, via berms to stabilize the water table, and by constructing tanks for collecting rainwater. In Kerala, a conflict has broken out: Coca Cola processes millions of liters of water. Neighbors claim that wells go dry because of it. After a long struggle, Coca Cola production is halted. But also agriculture draws enormous amounts of water for irrigation. Organic farming enables the soil to retain more water, so many farmers are switching to it, thus starting “The Evergreen Revolution”. The Center of Science and Environment (CSE) in Delhi adapts these solutions to modern urban life and has even succeeded to make roof water harvesting for all new buildings mandatory.
