Conserving water and ecosystem services
This study focused on peri-urban areas outside Bangalore to understand how forces of development, urbanisation and climate change are shaping these places. We have found that people are deprived with regard to poverty, especially in the dimensions of nutrition, water, sanitation and house floor. We have specifically found that water is a big challenge in many parts of the peri-urban areas. Efforts are thus required to conserver water and relevant ecosystem services.
