Dear Dr. Smith:

What kind of support National Productivity Council of India (www.npcindia.gov.in) can get from UNEP for setting up Center of Excellence on Water in India. Or is there any international body that we can contact?

Hi KD

Sounds like an interesting initiative. Try contacting our UNEP Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (UNEP/ROAP), as they manage the regional partnerships UNEP has in India.

Tel: +662 288 2314
Fax: +66-2-2803829
Email: uneproap@un.org

Otherwise UNESCO also support regional centres of excellence on water in some countries.

Hi Elizabeth

UNEP in Sudan does not directly work with microbiologists. But we sometimes partner with WHO on projects, and their experts, including microbiologists, take care of the water quality issues through mobile lab testing and simple testing kits. Also UNICEF through their WASH sector humanitarian interventions, do water quality testing and work with microbiologists, particularly in areas where livestock and human drinking water comes from the same source (open wells, hand pumps).
