Rapid IUWM aims to build the capacity of urban local bodies to understand interlinkages between water, wastewater and storm water; and adopt an integrated urban water management planning and implementation approach through multi stakeholder involvement. Two local urban bodies in Rajasthan (Kishangargh and Ajmer) developed an IUWM based vision for their cities and developed an action plan to achieve the IUWM vision. Both the cities implemented a pilot project based on prioritized strategy selected through stakeholder consultations. The project also builds the capacity of local authorities to create, enable, institutionalize and promote inclusive governance mechanisms undertaking water sector reforms for closing the urban water loop and conservation of water bodies within the cities.
