Since we started our work back in 2007 as Mumbai Paani, we have been written about by various news outlets. Our protests, marches, court victory, and other activities have been regularly published in print and online portals across languages.

Study of the interventions promoting privatization of water thus inhibiting the Right to Water: At the level of secondary data collection and analysis, we have collected a significant amount of data on the Water Distribution and Improvement Project (WDIP), slated to be a public private partnership between the MCGM and the Suez Environment. The initial concerns with this project were that it would eventually lead to the privatization of water access and distribution within the city of Mumbai. Though this concern remains, it has not taken any concrete shape so far. Our initial analysis of the data gathered indicates slow progress of the project implementation. We will continue to monitor the progress of this project over the next few years. Find the synopsis and initial analysis of the project at the end of the report.
