|"It gives me immense pleasure to inform you that TERI has been nominated as the Regional Knowledge Hub for Water and Climate Change Adaptation in South Asia by the Asia Pacific Water Forum (APWF). This is a challenging task and a huge responsibility, as one of the main purposes of the knowledge hub will be to ensure water security of the region through collective action. I consider this as a recognition of TERI's contribution to water research and also an acknowledgement of our ongoing efforts in addressing challenges in the water sector. This water knowledge hub will evolve into a platform which promotes knowledge exchange and capacity building in South Asia for improved water governance in the region. The success of the knowledge hub is the responsibility of all the partners and members and I wish you all success in making the knowledge hub a sustainable model of research on water and its application."|
|Ashok Jaitly Coordinator - Knowledge Hub and Director - Water Resources, WRPM, TERI||"Welcome to the web of water knowledge. The knowledge hub for water and climate change adaptation in South Asia aims to promote a shared water vision that enables a dynamic multi-disciplinary learning environment in South Asia. The hub envisages exchange of knowledge across borders for the efficient governance and use of water resources. This web portal acts as a gateway to the knowledge hub and I foresee a great future in strengthening the existing database and research network in the region through an online interactive platform. TERI as the main facilitator of the knowledge hub will enable exchange of knowledge, sharing of resources, and provision of solutions through a network web of partners from across the world. It's my pleasure to invite you to be a part of this multi-dimensional channel of knowledge and I look forward to your active participation and feed back."|
