Water Crisis in India: Strategies to Save Water

The past few years have witnessed an increase in the occurrence of natural disasters globally such as the devastating bushfire in 2020 in Australia that decimated the Koala bear population and the wildfire in 2021 in the Amazon rainforest that smothered a vast area of Brazil in smoke for several days at length.

Back home in India, we’ve seen incidences of forest fires reported across the hilly states of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh, cyclones in the coastal states of West Bengal and Odisha, and heavy floods in Assam and Kerala. Flash floods in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand indicate melting Himalayan glaciers as a result of climate change.
