Saph Pani is an EU funded collaborative research project which started in October 2011 with duration of three years involving a consortium of 20 partners from India, Europe, Sri Lanka and Australia, including UNESCO-IHE. Saph Pani addresses the improvement of natural water treatment systems such as bank filtration, managed aquifer recharge and constructed wetlands in India building on a combination of local and international expertise. The project aims at enhancing water resources and water supply particularly in water stressed urban and peri-urban areas in different parts of the sub-continent.
