Water Wisdom in Times of Climate Crisis

Water Wisdom in Times of Climate Crisis

  • 30 Aug, 2019

Water Wisdom in Times of Climate Crisis collates the traditional ingenious practices in water resource management from across the country – some practices even as old as 5000 years. The cases include Aji of Arunachal Pradesh practiced by the Apatanis, Dongs of Kokrajhar and Ahar Pynes of Bihar, amongst other cases. Some of these traditional water management practices highlight the innovative ways in which communities have been maintaining and restoring water ecosystems to ensure water security and equity at the local level. With India facing an unprecedented water crisis, integrated water management has never been more relevant than it is today. In seeking a way forward, reviving India’s drying rivers, ponds and lakes, and restoring the ecosystem services, including traditional and indigenous water management practices, is at the core of the solution.
