Delimiting the Boundary of Delhi for Effective Urban Political Ecology Investigations

Abstract: Delhi, capital of the world’s largest democracy, is witnessing large-scale increase in population since the beginning of the twentieth century. Two prominent factors that have contributed to this include the shifting of capital of the British Raj from Calcutta (now Kolkata) to Delhi in 1911 and the partition of India that accompanied its independence in 1947. Delhi continued to witness high rate of migration in post-independent India due to uneven implementation of development policies. Rising population led to spatial expansion and the largest connotation of Delhi today (National Capital Region) is an area 36 times its size in 1947. Rising population has also had an adverse impact on Delhi’s natural resources. Consequently, clean air, water and land availability have become limited and Delhi today is undergoing a severe sustainability crisis. The latter requires urgent intervention for restoring Delhi’s urban ecosystem. Since urban areas are highly contested ecological spaces, urban ecological interventions are incomplete without political overtones. Thus, the success of urban ecological interventions lies in identifying politically correct boundaries which encompasses true ‘urban Delhi’ despite the political boundaries. This research contribution attempts to identify the geographical expanse of ‘urban Delhi’ amidst the various political terminologies that define Delhi. An understanding of various divisions and definitions of Delhi is also presented from the perspective of appreciating the challenges in urban planning. We conclude that urban ecology investigations in Delhi should be embedded within the ‘Delhi conurbation’, which represents a geographical area greater than the Delhi city-state but much smaller than Delhi NCR.

Keywords: Delhi conurbation, Delhi NCR, urban ecosystem, urban political ecology.

Implication of Household Use of R.O. Devices for Delhi’s Urban Water Scenario

Author’s Affiliation: Department of Environmental Studies, Indraprastha College for Women, University of Delhi.

 

Abstract: The present research contribution attempts to study the increasing dependency of households in Delhi on R.O. devices and brings forward its implications on Delhi’s urban water scenario. The research focuses on five colonies in Delhi where preliminary water quality assessment was carried out so as to conduct a need assessment of installing R.O. devices versus the actual installation of these devices in individual households. Reverse osmosis is essentially a technique to reduce the hardness of water and the process involves de-mineralization or de-ionization of water by pushing it under pressure through a semi-permeable membrane. Consequently, an R.O. device is effective in households receiving water with high Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). However, an R.O. is neither required nor effective in households receiving water with low TDS, which were noted in the study area. This is because R.O. devices are not an effective method against biological impurities. Despite this limitation, over 78% of the households in the study area were found to rely on R.O. devices as a coping strategy against impaired municipal water supply. While some of these R.O. devices are also fitted with UV-filters (which help address biological impurities in water), the large-scale use of R.O. devices in households that do not require this technology poses a serious threat to urban water sustainability in Delhi.

Keywords: urban water, water supply, Delhi, R.O., water management.

Sustainability Appraisal and Economic Valuation of North Delhi Ridge Using Participatory Research Approach

First Author’s Affiliation: Department of Environmental Studies, Indraprastha College for Women, University of Delhi. Second, Third and Fourth Authors’ Affiliation: Delhi Greens, P.O. Box 4855, New Delhi.

 

Abstract: Delhi Ridge is the Northern extension of the Aravalli hill range and is a prominent landscape feature of the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi. Presence of Delhi Ridge, along with River Yamuna, has been of strategic significance in the selection of Delhi as a capital city since ancient times. Modern Delhi has grown beyond the physical boundaries of the Ridge and the Yamuna. The once barren Ridge has now been transformed into a forest, which provides useful ecosystem services to Delhi. Despite the large number of benefits provided by the Delhi Ridge, the latter is under a constant threat of encroachment and degradation. This is because land is a highly priced natural resource in Delhi. The approximately 78 sq. km area of the Delhi Ridge is thus seen by many as prospective real estate and several legal and illegal structures can be found inside the Delhi Ridge. The present research contribution is an attempt to carry out sustainability appraisal of the Delhi Ridge by using the principles of environmental economics and participatory research. We focus on the North Delhi Ridge (NDR) and have carried out an economic valuation of NDR using survey based methods. A participatory-GIS approach has been followed to highlight the physical boundary of NDR along with the areas of encroachment. We find that economic value of NDR is much greater than the benefits that may be drawn by modifying its land use land cover to concrete. We also find that in the absence of existing notification on the extent of the NDR, there is rampant encroachment on its eastern and southern side.

Keywords: ecosystem services, Delhi Ridge, environmental economics, urban ecology, participatory research.
