United Nations General Assembly, in the year 2015 set 17 goals that need to be achieved by the year 2030. These goals are called as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG 6 focusses on Water and Sanitation and it is high on Indian Government’s agenda as evident from Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan. Capacity building in this area is an important task and International Water Association (IWA), an association of water professionals around the world, predicted the requirement of professional capacity needs in Water and Sanitation. According to IWA, “the gap in 2014 was 700,000 individuals, but that gap has widened with the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals” -
