India is the fifth largest generator of e-waste in the world revealed this new report released by the United Nations University. India (1.7 Mt) along with Japan (2.2 Mt)  and China (6.0 Mt) is amongst the top three Asian nations with the highest e-waste generation in absolute quantities. 

Access to safe and affordable water is considered to be a basic human right, yet the universal reality does not reflect this principle. A lack of adequate capacity and financing, and national policies which often rely on unsustainable use of water resources, prevent effective and sustainable provision of safe water and sanitation.
