Towards a healthy Ganga (Global Water Forum)

The Ganga River is a symbol of faith, heritage and civilization. Its basin, with a 1.09 million km2 area and over 600 million people, generates approximately 40% of India’s GDP. Traversing over 2,500 km, the Ganga provides an extensive range of ecosystem services to riverine communities; water for cities and agriculture; fish production; recreational uses; and important sites for religious purposes to name a few.
