AHMEDABAD: Narendra Modi would not have thought of Gujarat International Finance Tec-City (GIFT) as the test-bed for future city technologies, but his dream project in Gandhinagar may well have this interesting spillover. Work on the proposed Rs 78,000-crore nano city has now started, and the first occupant may move in by March. By the time the first phase is completed in three-and-a-half years, this special economic zone (SEZ) would have tried out, on a small scale, some contemporary urban design ideas. GIFT would have a command and control centre to monitor the IT infrastructure and respond quickly during emergencies…
Can you stop washing your hands before this fish runs out of water?
Little Fishbowl Sink, designer Yan Lu created a very direct incentive to minimize water usage – when you turn the faucet on, the water level in the fishbowl decreases. It reminds us how precious this resource is, and how our everyday actions can affect the creatures around us.

Engineering, not magic: the 2011 winner of the James Dyson Award extracts water from thin air. Airdrop is a low-cost, self-powered, and easy-to-install solution to the problems of growing crops in arid regions.
Inspired by Australia's worst drought in a century, Edward Linacre from Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, turned to nature to find ways of capturing moisture from air. Edward studied the Namib beetle, an ingenious species which lives in one of the driest places on earth. With half an inch of rain per year, the beetle can only survive by consuming the dew it collects on the hydrophilic skin of its back in the early mornings.
Airdrop borrows this concept, working on the principle that even the driest air contains water molecules which can be extracted by lowering the air's temperature to the point of condensation. It pumps air through a network of underground pipes, to cool it to the point at which the water condenses and delivers water directly to the roots of plants.
Edward's research suggests that 11.5 millilitres of water can be harvested from every cubic meter of air in the driest of deserts. Further iterations of his design will increase the yield of Airdrop. A further £10,000 has also be awarded to Edward's University department to support other young engineers keen to follow in his footsteps.

JULIA Gillard's chief economic adviser has challenged governments to consider using recycled water for drinking, saying the constraints on its use could be increasing the cost of water supplies to consumers. - http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/pm-told-recycled-water-fit-to-drink/story-fn59niix-1226165331724

Take into attention,please. Each kWh of produced energy consumes about 100 litres (average estimation) of fresh water in existing conditions now. About exhaust gases I'm not talking.
Data gathered by global information and measurement provider Nielsen as part of its 2011 Global Online Environment & Sustainability survey, revealed that worldwide concern for global warming had slipped in priority with global consumers from 72% in 2007 to 66% in 2009. In contrast, issues such as water and air pollution have been rated as a higher priority with three out of four global consumers rating them as top concerns at 75% and 77% respectively.
Itron to supply 250,000 water meters to Delhi residents

Watched a fascinating serial on water while coming down from Milano to Chennai yesterday...some interesting points from the serial:
1. Only about 3% of the world's water is freshwater. Of this, only about 2% is in lakes and rivers. Most of the rest is present in groundwater.
2. In ancient Egypt, the amount of farm produce in a particular year was calculated based on the height of the Nile river, because the more the height of water, the higher the amount of silt it brought with it (from Algeria??), and the silt added the necessary fertility to the soil...
3. There are about 10000 cubic Kms of water in total contained in the dams - this is about five times the total amount of water in all rivers (not sure if I heard this right, sounds really hard to believe). The huge amounts of water in dams have in fact made such a big impact on the way mass is allocated on earth that it has resulted in a small change in the speed of rotation of earth!
Education society launches user-driven water conservation program
Education, efficiency and reduction in consumption: these are the goals of the Raincoast Education Society's Tofino Water Stewardship Program over the next 20 months.
"We need to re-think our relationship with water and build an ethic to reflect a more sustainable and efficient use of this precious resource," said Kimberly Johnston of the RES.
Johnston says the program was partially prompted by a 2006 water shortage in Tofino that forced businesses to temporarily shut down.
