Policy Interventions

Citizen Science Initiative

Conservation of Freshwater Ecosystems in Delhi and NCR: A four year programme for monitoring water quality and bird diversity at Okhla Bird Sanctuary, an “Important Bird Area” and other water bodies of Delhi NCR has been initiated. This is a collaborative effort by the Earthwatch India and INTACH, part of the HSBC Water Program. The programme aims at inspiring citizens to value water resources, understand the local and global freshwater issues, help with the data collection and enable proactive participation in water conservation. The database generated through this citizen science initiative will enable policy makers to take informed decisions.
