CSE - School of Water and Waste (SW&W) aims to establish policy principles, innovative technologies, and implementation strategies for city wide water and sanitation management, which will lay the foundations for a water and waste-prudent society. CSE also assists Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India as a Centre of Excellence in the area of sustainable urban water management aimed at mainstreaming reforms and capacity building of state/city officials.

Both centre/ state governments and local bodies have included urban waterbodies rejuvenation in programmes, policies and advisories as major reform agenda to address issues related to urban flooding, local water-supply resource enhancement, and to repair the broken water cycle in town/cities. Urban waterbodies management involves various soft and hard interventions for catchment area management, buffer area design, pollution abatement in waterbodies and effective stakeholder engagement to revive waterbodies as critical green infrastructure which not only helps in building urban resilience but also improves liveability in towns/cities, particularly when considered part of an overall urban strategy.
