Ganga Rejuvenation Track of IoT India Congress 2017 will explore the readiness of the Internet of Things can help clean India’s largest river – Ganga. Although the river caters to the water needs of about 40% of India’s population, unfortunately it is also amongst the most polluted rivers in the country. There have been various movements and action plans since 1986 to save Ganga. However the health of the river has been deteriorating.
For those business leaders who are also focused on social impact, this track will be critical as it would cut across industries and verticals to bring together cross-functional stakeholders and discuss solutions to help rejuvenate Ganga.
