Women Managers of Water

In the effort to provide safe and adequate water supply for all, Bihar is setting up Water Implementation and Management Committee (WIMCs) – a seven-member committee with three or more of its members women, responsible for the implementation of schemes in non-quality affected wards. This is embedded in the belief that women can manage water more efficiently as they have been the first to bear the brunt of the non-availability of water at the households or in the community.
