Jodhpur is the second largest city in the Indian state of Rajasthan. Located in the Thar Desert, the city is familiar with the challenges of water scarcity. Reservoirs and stepwells dating back to the 16th century are still functional and operate alongside newer infrastructure to transport and store water within the city walls.
Like other Indian cities, Jodhpur is urbanising rapidly. In 2012, Rajasthan's Public Health and Engineering Department (PHED) recognised that the city's infrastructure needed an upgrade in order to be able to respond to the increasing demand. With the help of a 49 million euro loan from AFD, PHED developed a sustainable, energy efficient drinking water system for the city of Jodhpur. Today more than 3,00,000 people in the city are benefitting from clean, domestic water.
