Casestudy on impact of diminishing wetlands on urban water bodies
Cities are being constructed over wetlands, lakes, forests, and grasslands more frequently. The ecosystem advantages that these natural infrastructures provided; such as flood control and microclimate control; are quickly dwindling.
The map of Bengaluru's Bellandur-Varthur neighborhood if observed can be identified the way the original blue-green features have changed significantly over time.
Urban India's water bodies and green cover have drastically changed in just 15 years and as a result of the change in natural infrastructure the intensity of vulnerability within the city area, has been largely affected.
