The National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) has introduced the Global River Cities Alliance (GRCA) while implementing the government’s Namami Gange program. The GRCA was unveiled at the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP28 in Dubai. The NMCG announced that the River Cities Alliance, consisting of 142 Indian River cities in partnership with NIUA, has expanded to include Den Haag from the Netherlands, Adelaide from Australia, and Szolnok from Hungary. Additionally, the RCA has signed a Memorandum of Common Purpose (MoCP) with 124 member Mississippi River Towns and Cities Initiative of the US, marking a significant global alliance. The launch of the GRCA represents a major milestone in international efforts for river conservation and sustainable water management. Partner countries are now ready to collaborate on post-COP activities to ensure effective implementation of the GRCA. NMCG Director General G Asok Kumar emphasized the importance of integrating rivers into urban planning without a regulatory mindset, echoing the Prime Minister’s call for new river planning.
