Who we are
CDD is a non profit, headquartered in Bangalore. Our purpose is to innovate, demonstrate, and
mainstream inclusive water and sanitation solutions. We aim to accomplish this purpose by developing contextualised, decentralised and resilient nature-based solutions through
adoption of systems approach.
Nature Based Systems (NBS) are inherently low on life cycle costs, carbon footprint and circular in character
and thus sustainable over the long term. We are committed to unlocking the potential of Decentralisation through our DEWATS approach – which tries
to tackle the issue of water pollution as close to the source as possible. Decentralisation and NBS are thus critical in transforming our fragile Urban Environments that
are facing an unprecedented onslaught of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) challenges.
