This project conducted by Sumita Bhattacharyya from ATREE and Jala Poshan Trust will focus on the development of biomonitoring tools and assessment schemes to enhance citizen ownership of lake management through more effective monitoring of these water bodies for community use and urban biodiversity.
The outcome would be easy to use monitoring tools for citizens to reliably track the water quality and ecological health of the lakes over time and also to develop a flexible and evolving definition of what constitutes a clean and sustainable urban lake. This would also give a platform for different stakeholders to state their needs from the lakes and allow for an inclusive approach to lake management.
