The Embassy of Israel in India has donated an Israeli-invented technology and Made-in-India drip irrigation system to the Children’s Park near India Gate in New Delhi. The initiative took place on World Water Day to encourage water-efficiency and teach young children about water conservation, the Embassy said in a statement.
H.E. Naor Gilon, Ambassador of Israel to India said, “We are happy to share the drip irrigation system with the Children’s Park near India Gate to assist them in their water conservation efforts. This is another example of the multifaceted partnership between Israel and India in the field of water. We are looking forward to collaborating with NDMC to transform this park into a water-efficient park,” he said.
In recent decades, the cutting-edge innovations developed by Israel to tackle water shortages have helped the country in positioning itself as a world leader in all aspects of water management. Israel is proud to share its expertise in water to promote water security around the world, and especially with India, the statement added.
The World Water Day, observed on March 22 every year, aims to address the sustainable management of water. The theme for World Water Day 2023 is ‘Accelerating Change.’
