Understanding Corporate Water Stewardship: Narratives from the Sharda Basin

  • 24 Apr, 2020

Communities in the Sharda Basin are demanding quick and inclusive intervention from the government to address the pertinent water related issues impacting their everyday life. The ecology of the river and its auxiliary channels like the ‘sootea nala’ is severely disrupted due to the industrial contamination by the leading sugar mills in the region. This could be a prominent contributory factor in impacting the quality of drinking water in the areas surrounding the region because of the unsustainable and non- participatory manner of waste governance by the factories located in the region.
