Event Details

We challenge participants to create innovative applications using Blockchain, AI & IoT techniques to solve the world's water problems

This Hackathon is organised by the Maharashtra Water Multi-Stakeholder Platform, which is a public-private-civil society partnership launched through a Government of Maharashtra resolution in May 2017. As a part of this activity, 2030 Water Resources Group (hosted at The World Bank) and the Maharashtra Water Resources Regulatory Authority (MWRRA) are managing a workstream titled “Wastewater Reuse and Management”. 2030 WRG secretariat, along with MWRRA and a key private sector partner - the Bombay Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) are managing this Hackathon.

Wastewater Reuse Certificates

Abbreviated as WRC, these are tradable electronic certificates issued to organisations and bodies based on the percentage and quality of wastewater that these organisations reuse in their processes. 


Submit an application using Blockchain for issuance, storage and trading of WRC’s. Participating teams will have to set up innovative Blockchain strategies that help achieve the following main objectives:

1. Storage of data on a public Blockchain to facilitate transparency
2. Innovation on Blockchain consensus algorithms that reduce potential of fraud
3. Setting up Blockchain based smart contracts between regulators and monitored organisations
4. Issue of WRC into the Blockchain based on performance of each organisation
5. Reliable WRC issue process with verifiable data points being stored in the Blockchain
6. Strategies to allow trading of these WRC’s over the Blockchain network
