Mrs. Snehal S. Ambekar, Mayor of Mumbai

“Megacities in India are somewhat better off than its villages in attainment of Sustainable Development Goal Number 6, ‘Clean Water and Sanitation’, although significant work is necessary to improve quality of water distribution in poorer areas and slums. The peripheral growth on the outskirts of Megacities causes more concern from water supply and sanitation angle. Megacities in India have more reason to worry about implications of Goal 13 about Climate Change since these can cause unpredictable high tides, floods and tsunamis. Mumbai will be happy to join the ‘Megacities Alliance for Water under Climate Change’ since it will be useful to exchange experience and expertise of various Megacities”.
