Two water quality networks, Arsenic Knowledge and Action Network (AKAN) – coordinated by SaciWATERs, and Fluoride Knowledge and Action Network (FKAN) – coordinated by INREM Foundation, have been involved in a European Union supported initiative, which aims to address fluoride and arsenic contamination issues in eight vulnerable districts of India. This is done by establishing a people centric district platform. In this context, a wide diversity of stakeholders are involved in each location. One important element is to share the tale of field level challenges, learning, experience and success with each others.
Both organizations dedicated two days focusing on ”how to share field realities” to each other, to people on the ground and to external partners through a interesting and impactful way. Considering this theme as backbone, a workshop on “Telling the water quality story” was organized from 25–26 February 2019 at YMCA, New Delhi.
