Gujarat-Denmark Water Hub is an international public-private partnership between Confederation of Danish Industry, State of Green and the Danish Embassy in New Delhi

· India is facing a huge task in accommodating the growth of its cities with its urban population poised to increase with 400 million by 2025.

· The condition of urban water supply has led the Indian government to include water management as a pivotal part of its 100 Smart Cities Mission. 60 cities have already been named, including 5 in Gujarat state.

· Gujarat has 2% of India’s water resources and 5% of India’s population. 65% of the state’s 500 dams and reservoirs are either empty or about to dry out, which means that several areas are facing severe water supply challenges.

· Decades of Danish experience with water related issues both in terms of governance and technology can help solve Gujarat's water challenges.

We support the visibility and commercialization of Danish cleantech solutions in Gujarat.

Gujarat-Denmark Water Hub provides the local platform and strong network necessary to bring Danish solutions into play in Gujarat through matchmaking with local partners and a joint promotion of quality solutions and the Danish sustainable model.


We enable companies and organizations from Gujarat to tap into Danish city governments- and companies’ know-how and solutions.

Gujarat-Denmark Water Hub engages with public and private Gujarati stakeholders interested in learning from the Danish experiences. We provide a forum for informational exchange on new approaches and solutions within energy efficiency, climate adaptation and resiliency.


How We Work
Public-private collaboration
Gujarat-Denmark Water Hub is a multi-stakeholder public-private partnership. We work with organizations from both the private and public sector in Denmark and Gujarat.

By working closely with key Gujarati stakeholders and decision-makers, we provide the platform and strong network necessary for promoting Danish solutions. We seek to contribute to solving Gujarat’s water challenges by sharing the Danish experiences with relevant local counterparts. Danish solutions can provide many valuable inputs to Gujarat’s current situation if they are properly adapted to local conditions.

Our main activities are conferences, workshops and seminars in Gujarat and Denmark with the purpose of marking our presence and increase the awareness of Danish water technologies. We also work with Danish cities and universities to engage public partners to be part of the holistic story about how Denmark has dealt with its water challenges. In short, Gujarat-Denmark Water Hub is a significant platform seeking to bring Danish solutions into play to help alleviate the water challenges in Gujarat.
