Diwakar Shetty CEO & MD
KRG IINDIA Research Center for Rainwater harvesting and Environment
Ever since his childhood Mr. Diwakar Shetty has been nature lover and is fond of bringing in ideas to protect the nature from unwanted developments. His love to nature brought him into the field of environmental services and he believes that the balance of five elements of nature Earth, Sky, Water, Air and Fire is of utmost importance to keep our planet safe and livable.
Mr. Shetty has been deeply involved as the researcher in the development of water management with Mr. K.R. Gopinath since 1996 at national and international level. Working with Mr. K.R. Gopinath, he came out with the vision of reaching out to the larger section and established his own company, KRG India Research Centre for Rainwater Harvesting and Environment to solve the universal problem of water crises.
Mr. Shetty is been experimenting, studying and has come up with many innovative, scientific and low cost methods to harvest rainwater. He is having dynamic personality who delivers lectures and talks at various academic institutions and corporate sectors to propagate and spread awareness on latest development in water sector. He has also presented papers at various international summits and seminars on water management.
After years of working on water he wonders why no one has come up with an idea to bring in text book for students to learn the subject of rainwater harvesting. There are manuals and guides on this subject but no single proper course book for students. Keeping this in mind he decided to write an easy and simple book covering all the aspects of rainwater harvesting. This book is a result of his vision to educate students on importance of rainwater harvesting.
Today, Mr. Diwakar Shetty leads a company as one of the foremost and prestigious organizations working on water and environment in India. The KRG group has over 16 years of experience in providing valuable environmental services throughout the world. The company has donned expertise by handling different types of rainwater harvesting methods as it consists of a group of professionals who are engaged in studying and implementing ground water developments and Artificial Recharge Structures based on the system and techniques of rainwater harvesting.
