The Nilgiris is traditionally considered a water rich area, the source of rivers and home to innumerable springs and wetlands. However over the last few years, there has been a growing water crisis, mainly centered around urban areas, but also affecting the countryside.
Through this portal, we aim to share as much data, information and knowledge as possible that would help support sustainable water resource management. This is a platform that is seeded with information from Keystone Foundation’s work. We hope that this will grow into a public repository and be a one stop shop for all water related information in the Nilgiris.
Here’s a film that gets us thinking about water resources in the Nilgiris.
