The aquatic epidemic: Water scarcity in Uttarakhand
Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 propagates the provision of universal access to clean water by 2030. While the objective is indeed ambitious, but it is at the same time intertwined with blazing pragmatic challenges. Focusing on India’s water resilience, it can be stated that majority part of India is facing unprecedented drought conditions which is marked with acutely low per capita water availability. What is further astonishing is that when one part of India is facing severe water stress, other part may be undergoing flood conditions. To understand the focus of water scarcity problem in India, it is required to obtain deep insights on the ground level situation. This study focuses upon unravelling the mystery behind the presence of water scarcity in the land of glaciers i.e. the State of Uttarakhand.
