India occupies 2 percent of the world’s land area, represents 16 percent of the world population and 15 percent of livestock, whereas it has only 4 percent of the water resources of the world.
Furthermore, India ranks 133rd out of 180 nations for its water availability and 120th out of 122 nations for its water quality. It has been evaluated that 80 percent of India’s surface is polluted which results in India losing US$ 6 billion every year due to water-related diseases. Challenges faced by the Indian water sector are due to increasing water consumption and wastage in urban areas, water-borne diseases, industrial growth, political and regulatory disputes, water cycle imbalances, increasing irrigation and agricultural demand, lack of technology, etc. According to estimates, India’s water sector requires investment worth US$ 13 billion.
The 4th Water India 2017 expo is an important platform created to show case products, services and solutions available in the water industry worldwide.
The event will provide comprehensive insight into the water industry–best practices, latest technologies, alternative solutions, emerging opportunity and business prospective.

Dwell on Design returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center, June 23-25, 2017, and is excited to announce the first wave of new programming! The highly- anticipated annual fair will welcome 300 new and returning exhibitors, transforming 100,000 square feet of concrete into a design incubator where prefab comes to life and design luminaries debate the issues of today. With three days of onstage programming from the top leaders in design, as well as, continuing education opportunities for every design discipline, Dwell on Design 2017 is shaping up to be another incredible event. The first wave of announcements includes the first confirmed featured speaker, the five content pillars, and a preview of returning brands and pavilions.
The first of many in the new featured speaker series, Dwell on Design welcomes architect Sir David Adjaye. Adjaye’s ingenious use of materials and his sculptural ability have established him as a leading architect with an artist’s sensibility and vision. His firm, Adjaye Associates, built their reputation with prestigious commissions around the world, including the Nobel Peace Centre in Oslo and the Moscow School of Management. Most recently, Adjaye gained recognition for his design of the Smithsonian Institute National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opened in fall 2016 at the National Mall in Washington, DC to praise and popularity. Adjaye Associates has offices in London, New York, and Accra, Ghana, with ongoing projects across the UK, US, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Adjaye has held academic posts at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and was awarded the prestigious Panerai London Design Medal in 2016. Dwell on Design is honored to present Adjaye onstage Friday, June 23rd, accompanied by Christopher Hawthorne, the esteemed architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times.
