Lake preservation and protection in Hyderabad: a watershed systems approach

by Siddharth Hande, Project Assistant at Indian Institute of Technology Madras

This is a presentation that builds on Hyderabad Urban Labs hypothesis that the preservation and protection of urban water bodies require actors to pursue an ecologically sensitive approach, which goes beyond property boundaries by explore the catchment in which these water bodies are in. Flows of water and waste are governed by an ecological frame that we believe is best understood at the scale of the watershed / catchment. This presentation will demonstrate the insights we can gain using this approach. It will also discuss a series of short term, medium term and long term interventions that can be imagined by urban communities.

This presentation was given at Lamakaan on 24th March 2013.
