Waterpedia is a wiki based openly-editable (for all registered users) free-content collaborative environmental encyclopedia project initiated by Karthi, for the people in the environment and sustainability sector.
The name WATERPEDIA is a linguistic blend of the words WATER (the elixir of life and the most vital element on the earth) and encycloPEDIA.
Waterpedia runs using the fully customized MediaWiki – the open source wiki engine created by the Wikimedia Foundation that supports and hosts Wikipedia, the oldest, and largest Wikimedia project. Additionally, it is also modernized with FOUNDATION - the most advanced and responsive skin created by Anthom.
In accordance with Waterpedia's environmental motive, this wiki is a carbon neutral website which means that we have attained a carbon offset to balance any greenhouse gas emissions that are created by running this website and its backend operations.
